September 28, 2013 – National Fishing Day
A South Dakota man was stopped by a game warden with two ice chests full of live fish.
The game warden asked the man, “Do you have a license to catch those fish?”
The man replied, “Naw, I ain’t got no license. These here are my pet fish.”
The game warden said, “Pet fish?”
The man then said, “Yup, every night I take these fish down to the lake and let ‘em swim ’round for awhile. Then I whistle and they jump right back into this ice chest and I take ‘em home.”
“That’s a bunch of BS,” the game warden said, “Fish can’t do that.”
The man looked at the game warden for a moment and then said, “It’s the truth, I’ll show you, it really works.”
The game warden then said, “Okay, I’ve got to see this.”
So the man poured the fish into the lake and stood and waited.
After several minutes, the game warden turned to him and said, “Well?”
“Well, what?” the man said.
The game warden said, “When are you going to call them back?”
“Call who back?” said the man.
“The fish,” replied the game warden.
The man then came back with,”What fish?”
We in South Dakota may not be as smart as some, but we ain’t as dumb as most!
