+ 'its national catfish day!' craig ferguson exclaims, 'it was actually started in 1987, catfish day, by president regan, so thank you mr. president! you took the time out of single-handedly defeating communism to give us catfish day. probably not what you are best remembered for, but you did do it. catfish go their name cause they look a bit like cats. i'm running low on crap about catfish day... no, they're called catfish cause they've got the wiskers, and they look a bit like cats. now, cats the animals, not the broadway show 'cats', but they can do jazz fins!'
