Catfish'd: 6 Other Fish-Named Dating Pitfalls Manti Te'o Wouldn't Much Prefer

Seabass <br> <br> Because no one ever said, "I thought I was dating a pretty young Stanford grad, but it tuned out I was dating a violent and scruffy Dumb and Dumber character played by Cam Neely. And ya know what? I'm actually  glad I got Seabass'd!"
Did you hear Manti Te’o got Catfish’d??!!! Since I just learned what the verb “Catfish’d” means, I’m going out of my way to use it in every sentence so people know darn well that I am very familiar with the word. It’s similar to what four year-olds do when they learn a new word, but... Read more »
