Oh my!
July!
Wanna try...
a riddle?

A reminder of the rules:
I'll post a riddle and leave it up for a month for people to submit answers. You can answer as many times as you like, and can be as serious or as silly as you want with them. Correct (or particularly clever/amusing) answers will be awarded shmuckers!

The exact amount awarded will depend on how much I have in my purse and how many responses I get. Likewise, awards for clever or amusing answers will be at my discretion - you may think were hilarious, but they're my shmuckers, capisce? :p

Now, the riddle for July:
Quote:
What is the difference between a fisherman and a lookamancer?

    One looks out to see, the other looks out to sea.

    A fisherman will sacrifice a worm to catch a prize.

    Stanley the Worm sacrificed a Lookamancer to avoid being one.

    The latter looks by casting, and the former hooks by casting.

    One's away at sea, the other sees what's away.

    The Lookamancer won't smell bad after trolling for a big catch.

    The fisherman can tell you how big a fish he caught, while the Lookamancer can tell you how big a fish was caught by anyone else.

    "Hey, look at what I got!".
    ... err, that's how they are similar.

    EDIT: Ahh! One tells you stories of what *is* seen, the other tells you stories of what *was* seen.

    One sees from land, the other lands from sea.

    One sees the fishes, and one fishes the seas (to seize the fish).

    When one says "It was THIS big," they are talking about the foe that is approaching. The other is talking about the one that got away.

    Fishermen do all the seining.
    Lookamancers do the seeing.

    One is good for scouting. One is good for Trouting.

    One can catch a Brook Trout. The other is a good Look Out.

    One says, "I'm at sea." The other says, "Eyemancy."

    No one in particular wrote:

    Both begins with a "B" and neither has an "N", of course...

    Sorry, sorry, I know it's not original, but I couldn't resist.

    The lookermancer can cast into adjacent hexes.

    Unless the fisherman has a harpoon or a net.
