"Salmon Fishing in the Yemen" sounds like the name of a really good backpacker-rap mixtape, but no, it’s actually about salmon fishing in the Yemen. Somewhat of a surprise nod, but “Moonrise Kingdom” (or “Silver Linings Playbook”) should beat it easily. (BTW: Worth noting that Bill Murray got a nod for “Hyde Park on Hudson,” so DDL doesn’t hold a monopoly on the presidential beat.)
