Suzie got an inheritance, shortly after Johnny started dating Suzie. Suzie spent a ton of money on Johnny buying new clothes, big screen tv's, a new truck for Johnny, and a beautiful condo for her and Johnny to live in. Johnny swore he loved her. Suzie put the truck in Johnny's name because she too loved Johnny. Suzie soon realized that all of her money had been spent. Johnny then broke up with Suzie, took the truck, the tv's, the clothes, and never looked back. Suzie is now broke, and broken hearted. Shame on Johnny, he was just "cat fishing".

To have one large pubic hair protruding from one's zipper, whether purposely or by accident. The term comes from the long barbels, or whiskers that stick out from the mouths of catfish. While the whiskers of catfish house their taste buds and are used to search for food in murky waters, the act of catfishing will only serve to make you look like a complete slob, oblivious airhead, or creepy perv.
