Only in Kentucky— An Eely Man Cave

Only in Kentucky— An Eely Man Cave July 21, 2022

There are many many caves and sinkholes in Kentucky.  Mammoth Cave is in Kentucky, and not far from there a giant sinkhole opened up and swallowed a whole bunch of vintage Corvettes at the Corvette Museum in Bowling Green. I even went to see the hole in the floor of the museum and see the car a good 30 down below the floor of the museum. Yikes!  So this recent story by Jeannie Moos (who is a veteran in dealing with strange and wonderful and hilarious stories).   Turns out there is a young man who discovered he had a cistern under his garage for catching rainwater. He concluded, as a Kentucking used to caves and holes everywhere that this had the makings of a great man cave, if only he had some appropriate companions. Enter the mail order eels.  Lots of them.  Below is the link to this strange but wonderful story of a man and his pet eels.  Pay attention especially to the names he has given them.  These named eels are currently blowing up the internet.   You never know what lurks around the next corner in Kentucky.  One disclaimer— this story is not the product of having drunk too much bourbon and having a vivid imagination.
