Angling For a New Truck

slimmen_20090224163700992_320_240Monica Slimmen the scary-eyed Debra Messing doppelganger to the left caught a 1.72 pound northern pike during an ice fishing competition in Somerset, Wisconsin, earning her second place among 2500 fellow competitors. The winner of the competition was Lee Shehow who caught a 2.4 lb pike which got him the grand prize, a brand new 27,000 truck. All in all, a fine day for the town’s Youth Athletic Association which raised more than $100,000.

Luckily for Slimmen, Shehow is a shady dude and it turns out that he smuggled in his winning catch in his coat.

“He was buying water from the girls, out buying water and pop, and he was all wet on his shirt and inside his coat. And that was some suspicious activity also,” says John Montpetit, event organizer. “He was very nervous when he came up, and the people registering the fish and weighing the fish thought something was abnormal.”

The organizers then brought in a private investigator and a lie detector expert and were prepared to give Shehow a polygraph but he disqualified himself and returned the truck. Now, Slimmen, who has spent the brutal Wisconsin winter without 4-wheel drive has a brand new truck and more importantly, can claim to be the winner of a semi-prestigious fishing event, which is almost nothing to sneeze at. Almost.

The local sheriff is investigating Shehow, but since he returned the truck it is likely that there won’t be any charges.
Don’t worry though, next year’s event will have much better security according to organizers so that we can all angle confidently and safe from treachery.
