Ann Posted April 17, 2007 Share Posted April 17, 2007 Subject: Missouri Fish A hillbilly was stopped by a game warden in Missouri recently with two ice chests of fish. He was leaving a cove well known for its fishing. The game warden asked the man, "Do you have a license to catch those fish?" "No, sir, I don't have any of those licenses. You must understand these are my pet fish." "Pet fish?" said the game warden. "Yeah. Every night I take these here fish down to the lake and let them swim 'round for a while. Then I whistle and they jump right back into this ice chest and I take them home." "That's a bunch of hooey! Fish can't do that!" says the warden. The hillbilly looked at the game warden for a moment and then said, "It's the truth Mr. Government man, I'll show you. It really works." "Okay," said the game warden, "I've GOT to see this!" The hillbilly poured the fish into the lake and stood and waited. After several minutes, the game warden turned to him and said, "Well?" "Well, what?" said the hillbilly. The warden said, "When are you going to call them back?" The hillbilly said, "Call who back?" "The FISH!" replied the warden. "What fish?" answered the hillbilly. We in Missouri may not be as smart as some city slickers, but we aren't as dumb as most government employees. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
