“He who casts the first stone…isn’t coming fishing again”

“He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her” is from the New Testament John 8:7. “Cast” is also a fishing term. “He who casts the first stone...really needs to start thinking about fishing lessons” was a tweet by comedian Sean Hagarty on December 29, 2010.

The joke was posted on Sickipedia in July 2013:

“He who casts the first stone..
..isn’t coming fishing again.”
