Gone Fishin is still traveling for work this week, so you get the fill in guy while he’s busy. Generally Fishin has at least one dad joke in the words up here, but I don’t know any and I’m to lazy to google some, so feel free to drop a dad joke or two along with the usual hump day gifs in the comments. Today’s media selection is on purpose because Gone Fishin doesn’t watch the Harry Potter shows and I do along with a lot of other open thread regulars. Time to carry on with our news and links open thread full of beer recommendations, nap strategies, instant pot and smoker recipes. Fire up the mock drafts and drop by for some fan wisdom, snark and have another helping of grits and oysters.
Around the DN since our last open thread:

Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:
-No discussion of politics or religion
-No feeding of the trolls
-This isn’t a male version of The View, so leave the gender hatred at the door
-Keep the bad language to a minimum (using the spoiler tags, if you must)
-Speaking of which, if discussing a newer show or movie, please use spoiler tags
-No pictures that could get someone fired or in serious trouble with their employer
-If you can’t disagree in a civil manner, feel free to go away
-While navigating the open thread, just assume it’s sarcasm.
With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open. Belly up & tie one on. Don’t forget to tip your waitress, try the price reduced hot dog and as always, Welcome Aboard!
