Pet fish

Post by Accountable »

A redneck was stopped by a game warden in Central Mississippi recently with two ice chests full of fish. He was leavin' a cove well-known for its fishing.



The game warden asked the man, 'Do you have a license to catch those fish?'

'Naw, sir', replied the redneck. 'I ain't got none of them there licenses. You must understand, these here are my pet fish.'



'Pet fish?'



'Yeah. Every night, I take these here fish down to the lake and let 'em swim 'round for awhile. Then, when I whistle, they jump right back into these here ice chests and I take 'em home.'



'That's a bunch of hooey! Fish can't do that.'



The redneck looked at the warden for a moment and then said, 'It's the truth Mr. Government Man. I'll show ya. It really works.'



'O. K.', said the warden. 'I've got to see this!'



The redneck poured the fish into the lake and stood and waited.



After several minutes, the warden says, 'Well?'



'Well, what?', says the redneck.



The warden says, 'When are you going to call them back?'



'Call who back?'



'The FISH', replied the warden!



'What fish?', replied the redneck.



Moral of the story: Southerners may not be as smart as some city slickers, but we ain't as dumb as some government employees.



You can say what you want about the South, but you never hear of anyone retiring and moving north.

ALOHA!!

MOTTO TO LIVE BY:

"Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, champagne in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming.

WOO HOO!!, what a ride!!!"
