Subj: Game Warden Catches Two Guys (S514, S745)
From: ezines in 2011
A couple of young guys were fishing
at their special pond
off the beaten track when out of the bushes jumped the game
warden! Immediately, one of the boys threw his rod down
and started running through the woods like a bat out of
hell and hot on his heels came the game warden. After about
a half mile, the guy stopped and stooped over with his hands
on his thighs to catch his breath and the game warden finally
caught up to him.
"Let's see yer fishin license, boy!" the warden gasped.
With that, the guy pulled out
his wallet and gave the game
warden a valid fishing license.
"Well, son," said the Game Warden.
"You must be about as
dumb as a box of rocks! You don't have to run from me if
you have a valid license!"
"Yes sir," replied the young
feller. "But my friend back
there, well, he don't have one..."

Subj: Mexican Fisherman Meets MBA (S120, S832)
From: mbucher in 1999
(See 'Benny The Beach Bum Comic Strip' in Other Occupations-Supp2)
The American investment banker
was at the pier of a small
coastal Mexican village when a small boat with just one
fisherman docked. Inside the small boat were several
large yellow fin tuna. The American complimented the
Mexican on the quality of his fish and asked how long it
took to catch them.
The Mexican replied, only a little while.
The American then asked why didn't
he stay out longer and
catch more fish?
The Mexican said he had enough
to support his family's
The American then asked, "but
what do you do with the rest
of your time?"
The Mexican fisherman said, "I
sleep late, fish a little,
play with my children, take siesta with my wife, Maria,
stroll into the village each evening where I sip wine and
play guitar with my amigos, I have a full and busy life."
The American scoffed, "I am a
Harvard MBA and could help
you. You should spend more time fishing and with the
proceeds, buy a bigger boat with the proceeds from the
bigger boat you could buy several boats, eventually you
would have a fleet of fishing boats.
Instead of selling your catch
to a middleman you would
sell directly to the processor, eventually opening your
own cannery. You would control the product, processing
and distribution. You would need to leave this small

The Mexican fisherman asked,
"But, how long will this
To which the American replied, "15-20 years."
"But what then?"
The American laughed and said
that's the best part.
"When the time is right you would announce an IPO and
sell your company stock to the public and become very
rich, you would make millions."
"Millions.. Then what?"
The American said, "Then you
would retire. Move to a
small coastal fishing village where you would sleep late,
fish a little, play with your kids, take siesta with your
wife, stroll to the village in the evenings where you
could sip wine and play your guitar with your amigos."

Subj: Drunk Goes Ice Fishing (S185, S624)
From: KMACINTY in 2000
A drunk decides to go ice fishing,
so he gathers his gear
and goes walking around until he finds a big patch of ice.
He heads into the center of the ice and begins to saw a hole.
All of sudden, a loud booming voice comes out of the sky.
"You will find no fish under that ice."
The drunk looks around, but sees
no one. He starts sawing
again. Once more, the voice speaks.
"As I said before, there are no fish under the ice."
The drunk looks all around, high
and low, but can't see a
single soul. He picks up the saw and tries one more time to
finish. Before he can even start cutting, the huge voice
"I have warned you three times now. There are no fish!"
The drunk is now flustered and
somewhat scared, so he asks
the voice, "How do you know there are no fish? Are you God
trying to warn me?"
"No", the voice replied. "I am the manager of this hockey rink."

Subj: Couple's Vacation At The Lake (S90, S628)
From: woneye in 2003
A couple went on vacation to
a resort up north. The husband
liked to fish, and the wife liked to read. One morning the
husband came back from fishing after getting up real early
that morning and took a nap.
While he slept, the wife decided
to take the boat out. She was
not familiar with the lake, so she rowed out and anchored the
boat, and started reading her book.
Along comes the Game Warden in
his boat, pulls up alongside
the woman's boat and asks her what she's doing? She says,
"Reading my book."
The Game Warden tells her she
is in a restricted fishing area
and she explains that she's not fishing. To which he replied,
"But you have all this equipment. For all I know you could
start at any moment. I'll have to take you in and write you up."
"If you do that, I'll have to
charge you with sexual assault,"
says the woman.
"But I haven't even touched you," says the game warden.
"That's true, but you have all
the equipment. For all I know
you can start at any moment," says the woman.
"Have a nice day, ma'am," and the game warden left.
MORAL: Never argue with a woman
who reads. It's likely she
can also think.

Subj: Blind Fishing Salesman (S80, S345b)
From: RFSlick in 1998
A woman goes into Wal-Mart to
buy a rod and reel for her
grandson's birthday. She doesn't know which one to get
so she just grabs one and goes over to the counter. A
Wal-Mart associate" is standing there with dark shades on.
She says, "Excuse me sir ...
can you tell me anything
about this rod and reel?"
He says, "Ma'am I'm completely
blind, but if you'll drop
it on the counter I can tell you everything you need to
know about it from the sound it makes."
She doesn't believe him, but drops it on the counter anyway.
He says "That's a six-foot Shakespeare
graphite rod with
Zebco 404 reel and 10-pound test line... It's a good all
around combination and it's on sale this week for only $20.00."
She says, "It's amazing that
you can tell all that just by
the sound of it dropping on the counter; I'll take it."
The woman opens her purse and sees her credit card holder
drop on the floor.
As she bends down to pick it
up she accidentally passes gas.
At first she is really embarrassed, but then concludes there
is no way he could tell it was she that farted. Being blind,
he wouldn't know that she was the only person around.
The man rings up the sale and says, "That'll be $34.50 please."
The woman is totally confused
by this and says, "Didn't you
tell me it was on special for $20.00? How did you get $34.50?"
The clerk explains , "Yes Ma'am,
the rod and reel is $20.00;
but the duck call is $11.00 and the catfish bait is $3.50."

Subj: Fisherman And His Two Sons (S130, DU)
From: RFSlick in 1999
One day many years ago, a fisherman's
wife blessed her
husband with twin sons. They loved the children very much,
but couldn't think of what to name their children. Finally,
after several days, the fisherman said, "Let's not decide on
names right now. If we wait a little while, the names will
simply occur to us."
After several weeks had passed,
the fisherman and his wife
noticed a peculiar fact. When left alone, one of the boys
would also turn towards the sea, while the other boy would
face inland. It didn't matter which way the parents posi-
tioned the children, the same child always faced the same
direction. "Let's call the boys Towards and Away," sug-
gested the fisherman. His wife agreed, and from that point
on, the boys were simply known as TOWARDS and AWAY.
The years passed and the lads
grew tall and strong. The day
came when the aging fisherman said to his sons, "Boys, it is
time that learned how to make a living from the sea." They
provisioned their ship, said their goodbyes, and set sail for
a three month voyage.
The three months passed quickly
for the fisherman's wife, yet
the ship had not returned. Another three months passed, and
still no ship.
Three whole years passed before
the grieving woman saw a
lone man walking towards her house. She recognized him as
her husband. "My goodness! What has happened to my
darling boys?" she cried.
The ragged fisherman began to
tell his story: "We were just
barely one whole day out to see when Towards hooked into a
great fish. Towards fought long and hard, but the fish was
more than his equal. For a whole week they wrestled upon
the waves without either of them letting up. Yet eventually
the great fish started to win the battle, and Towards was
pulled over the side of our ship. He was swallowed whole,
and we never saw either of them again."
"Oh dear, that must have been
terrible! What a huge fish
that must of been! What a horrible fish. What a horrible

Subj: Newfoundland Night Fishing (S159, DU)
From: smiles in 2000
Off the coast of Newfoundland,
a great many fishermen do their
fishing at night. They navigate solely by the light of the
moon, scorning more sophisticated methods. Of course, from
time to time this method fails, and shipwrecks are the result.
The Department of Fisheries was
reviewing statistics one day,
and was shocked to discover how many shipwrecks there were
during night fishing. When they discovered that the fishermen
were navigating by the light of the moon, they promptly
installed buoys near all the dangerous shoals and reefs to aid
night navigation. To their surprise, when the statistics came
in the following month, the shipwrecks had tripled! The buoys
were removed, and things returned to normal. The moral of the

Subj: Twin Brothers Each Have A Loss (S514b)
Twin brothers were named Joe
and John Jones. The single
brother, Joe, was the disgruntled owner of a dilapidated
old boat. It happened that John's wife died the same week
that Joe's boat finally sank. Shortly thereafter, the
kindly old widow Smith met Joe on the street and mistaking
him for John, she said, "Oh Mr. Jones, I am so sorry to
hear about your great loss. You must feel terrible."
Joe responded saying, "Well,
I'm not the least bit sorry,
she was a rotten old thing from the very beginning. Her
bottom was all shriveled up and she smelt like a dead fish.
Hell, even the first time I got into her she made water
faster than anything I had ever seen. She had a bad crack
in the back and a pretty big hole in the front. The hole
got bigger every time I used her and she leaked like anything.
But do you know what finished her off?
Four guys from the other side
of town were looking for a good
time. They asked if I would rent her to them. I warned them
that she wasn't so hot, but they said they would take a crack
at her anyway. The result was that the crazy fools all tried
to to get into her at one time and it was just too much for
her. She cracked right down the middle!" Widow Smith fainted

There's these three guys and
they're out having a relaxing
day fishing. Out of the blue, they catch a mermaid who begs
to be set free in return for granting each of them a wish.
Now one of the guys just doesn't believe it, and says: "Ok,
if you can really grant wishes, than double my I.Q."
The mermaid says: "Done."
Suddenly, the guy starts reciting
Shakespeare flawlessly and
analysing it with extreme insight. The second guy is so
amazed he says to the mermaid:
"Triple my I.Q."
The mermaid says: "Done."
The guy starts to spout out all
the mathematical solutions to
problems that have been stumping all the scientists of varying
fields: physics, chemistry, etc.
The last guy is so enthralled
with the changes in his friends,
that he says to the mermaid: "Quintiple my I.Q." The mermaid
looks at him and says: "You know, I normally don't try to
change people's minds when they make a wish, but I really wish
The guy says: "Nope, I want you
to increase my I.Q. times five,
and if you don't do it, I won't set you free."
"Please," says the mermaid "You
don't know what you're asking.
It'll change your entire view on the universe. Won't you ask
for something else. A million dollars, anything?" But no
matter what the mermaid said, the guy insisted on having his
I.Q. increased by five times it's usual power.
So the mermaid sighed and said: "Done." And he became a woman.

an item which reaches us by way of Moscow.
The dog was swimming across the
Pechora River to join its
master when it vanished, leaving only a ripple. The dog's
master, who was fishing at the time, hauled in his net and
found it contained a giant pike. He looked closely at its
mouth and said to himself (probably) "Thereby hangs a tail."
Yes, it was Fido (or the Russian
equivalent). The dog
struggled out after the fish was cut open, and, according
to Radio Moscow, hurled itself at the pike, "barking

A character in one of Shakespeare's
plays, boasting of his
accomplishments said, "I can call up monsters from the vast
deep." Any fisherman could have given the answer, "So can
I and so can any man, but will they come?"
Men and women have been calling
to fish, pleading with them,
and swearing at them without response since the beginning of
time. A federally supported research project may change that
Working with the whale family
(porpoise or dolphin), scientists
in Florida have set out to translate fish language. They are
not far along yet but have made some headway. Various clicks
and whistles have been recorded that indicate, at least in the
whale family, one fish has a way to communicating what is on
his mind to another fish. If the research continues as planned,
it should be only a matter of time until man will be able to
reproduce fish noises and communicate what is on his mind to
bass, perch, and catfish.
All right-minded fishermen agree
that fish-talk research
projects should be cancelled and the scientists in it forced
to seek other employment. The reasoning behind this point of
view is simple and sound. If the research continues to its
logical conclusion, fishing will cease to be the pleasant
and relaxing sport that it now is. Fishing will become a
business of bellowing speeches in fish language designed to
convince fish that they would be better off on the bank or
in the boat than they are in the water.
In such circumstances, any fool
knows who the men that will
catch all the fish will be. They will be politicians!

Subj: Wet Dream (S38, DU)
From: Daemonic Funnies Page
It was April the 41st, being
a quadruple leap year. I was
driving in down-town Atlantis. My Barracuda was in the shop,
so I was in a rented Stingray, and it was over-heating. So
I pulled into a Shell station.
They said I'd blown a seal.
I said, "Fix the damned thing,
and leave my private life out of it, okay pal?"
While they were doing that, I
walked over to a place called
the Oyster Bar, a real dive. I knew the owner. He used to
play for the Dolphins. I said "Hi Gil!" You have to yell,
he's hard of herring.
Gil was also down on his luck.
Fact is, he was barely keeping
his head below water. I bellied up to the sandbar. He poured
me the usual -- Rusty Snail, hold the grunion, shaken, not
stirred. With a peanut butter and jellyfish sandwich on the
side, heavy on the Mako. I slipped him a fin on porpoise. I
was eeling good! I even dropped a sand-dollar in the box for
Jerry's squids...for the Halibut.
Well, the place was crowded.
We were packed in like sardines.
They were all there to listen to the Big Band sound of Tommy
Dorsal. What sole. Tommy was rocking the place with a very
popular tuna... "Salmon-chanted Evening."
The stage was surrounded by screaming
groupers, probably there
to see the bass player.
One of them was this cute little
yellow-tail, and she's giving
me the eye! I figure this is my chance for a little fun... ya
know, a piece of Pisces. She said things I just couldn't
fathom. She was too deep. She seemed to be under a lot of
pressure. Boy, could she drink. She drank like a...well, she
drank a lot. I said, "What's your sign?" She said,
"Aquarium." I said "Great! Let's get tanked!!"
I invited her up to my place
for a little midnight bait. I
said, "Come on, baby, it'll only take a few minnows." She
threw me that same old line "Not tonight, I've got a haddock."
She wasn't kidding, either, 'cause in came the biggest, meanest
looking haddock I'd ever seen come down the pike.
He was covered with mussels.
He came over to me and said,
"Listen, shrimp, don't ya come trolling around here..." What
a crab! This guy was steamed. I could see the anchor in his
eyes. I turned to him. I said, "Abolone. You're just being
Well, I knew there was going
to be trouble, and so did Gil,
'cause he was already on the phone to the Cods. The haddock
hits me with a sucker punch. I catch him with a left hook.
He eels over. It was a fluke. There he was, lying on the
deck, flat as a mackerel...kelpless. I said, "Forget the Cods,
Gil. This guy's gonna need a sturgeon."
Well, the yellow-tail was impressed
with the way I landed her
boyfriend. She came over to me. She said, "Hey, big boy,
you're really a game fish.
What's your name?" I said, "Marlin."
Well, from then on we had a whale
of a time. I took her to
dinner. I took her to dance. I bought her a bouquet of
flounders. I went home with her. What did I get for my
trouble? A case of the clams.
