A redneck was stopped by a game warden in Arkansas 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
"Naw, sir", replied the redneck. "I ain't got none of them there
licenses. You must understand, these here are my pet fish."
"Yeah. Every night, I take these here fish down to the lake and
let 'em swim 'round for a while. 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.
