“GK: They’re coming up from the south and pushing out native species. And we’re going to stop them, one vasectomy at a time.

SS: But why don’t we just catch them in nets?

GK: Well-meaning liberals have written Cruelty to Carp provision into state law, so vasectomies is the only way we can control the carp population. Scissors.”
