ACTION Bus Outage Reminder Disturbing Dream

Fish Tale

July 7th, 2006 at 10:20am

This week’s Friday Funny comes from Charity in Sydney.

THERE WAS a man who fished every day and always came back with a good catch. Eventually, the game warden decided this guy must be doing something illegal. So the warden put on old clothes and made friends with the man. “I’ve noticed you always catch fish,” the warden said. “Can I go out with you?” The fisherman
shrugged. “Sure,” he replied. “See you here at 5 a.m. tomorrow.”

The next day, they went fishing together. The fisherman steered his boat into a remote part of the lake, then stopped. He opened his tackle box, took out a stick of dynamite, lit the fuse and threw it into the water. After it went off, dozens of stunned fish floated to the surface.

The warden was astounded. “I caught you red-handed,” he said. “I’m the game warden, and you’re under arrest.” The fisherman said nothing. He reached into his tackle box, took out another stick of dynamite, lit the fuse and handed it to the warden. The fisherman then asked him, “You going to talk or fish?”

    I don’t get it. The best I can work out is that if the warden throws the dynamite he has been handed into the lake, he will have committed the act of illegal fishing himself, hence will supposedly be in no position to arrest the dynamite fisherman.

    However, I don’t think this would be so. Indeed, I think this does nothing to subvert the fact that the dynamite fisherman has been caught red-handed. I don’t know much about explosives, but I suspect it would moreover be possible to disable the dynamite rather than throw it.

    Good news Mark…the next Friday Funny won’t need you to work it out.

    I am mildy concerned about your apparent lack of a sense of humour though Mark.
