Salmon jokes are a hot topic this week - after President Barack Obama's joke about salmon got the biggest laugh of the night during his State of the Union speech Tuesday. The President said:
"The Interior Department is in charge of salmon when they're in fresh water, but the Commerce Department handles them while they're in salt water - I hear it gets even more complicated once they're smoked." Even former governor and current Commerce Secretary Gary Locke got a laugh out if it.
There's even a new satirical website - based in Seattle -called 'the Seattle Salmon' - which was officially announced just hours after Tuesday's address.
It makes fun of Starbucks - saying the company just announced the largest size yet - 'The Jabba'. The site claims Governor Gregoire just solved our state's money woes with a Nigerian money transfer. And of course it pokes fun at Northwest salmon - saying their population is dwindling because they're too passive-aggressive to mate.
Editor Zack Lewis says he hopes Seattleites don't get too offended by the jokes on the parody site.
