  1. Now that…that is f-ing funny!

  2. You can teach a man everything he knows. Just don’t teach him everything you know.

  3. Funny! I enjoy Terry Pratchett’s version: “Teach a man to make fire, and he’ll be warm for the day. Set a man on fire, and he’ll be warm for the rest of his life.”

  4. If he knows your favorite spot you’ve taught him more than how to fish.
