After the ice sheet they were fishing on broke away from the shore this weekend, 134 men had to be rescued by helicopter from Lake Erie. What do you think?

  • “That's not fair. I live near Lake Erie and have been waiting for years to be rescued.”

  • “See, if that had been women ice-fishing instead of men, the testosterone levels involved with impulsive decision-making would not have prompted such an unwise choice. Also, women are fatter and thus more buoyant.”

  • “My heart goes out to their families.”
