Subj:     Game Warden Catches Two Guys
          From: ezines in 2011 (S514, S745)

 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
          From: mbucher in 1999 (S120, S832)

 (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
 immediate needs.

 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
 coastal fishing village and move to Mexico City, then
 LA and eventually NYC where you will run your expanding

 The Mexican fisherman asked, "But, how long will this
 all take?"

 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
          From: woneye in 2003 (S90, S628)

 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
          From: RFSlick in 1999 (S130)

 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

 middle of a big field.  He yells out to him, "Vot da heck are

Subj:     Newfoundland Night Fishing
          From: smiles in 2000 (S159)

 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

 away.  So pack my clothes, my fishing equipment, and especially

 He goes home in a hurry and grabs everything and rushes off.

 A week later he returns.  His wife asks:  "Did you have a good
 trip, dear?"

 He says: " Oh yes, the fishing was great!  But you forgot to pack
 my blue silk pajamas."

 His wife smiles and says, "Oh, no I didn't. I put them in your

Subj:     Twin Brothers Each Have A Loss
          From jdsteves (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
 dead away.

Subj:     Three Fishermen Catch Mermaid
          From: RFSlick in 1998 (S65)

 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
 you'd reconsider."

 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, 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

Subj:     Talking To Fish (DU)
          by Bill Kennedy

 This was published in The South Texas Fisherman, sometime

 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)
          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

 "Aquarium." I said "Great!  Let's get tanked!!"

 I invited her up to my place for a little midnight bait.  I
