A hillbilly was stopped by a game warden in
Georgia recently with two ice chests of fish. He
was leaving a cove well known for its fishing.
The game warden asked the man, "Do you have a
license to catch those fish?"
"Naw, sir, I ain't got none of them there
licenses, no. You mustunderstand these here are
my pet fish." "Pet fish?" said the game
warden. "Ya. Every night I take these here fish
down to da lake and let them swim 'round for a
while. Then I whistle and they jump rat
back into this here ice chest and I take them home."
"That's a bunch of hooey! Fish can't do that!"
says the warden
The hillbilly looked at the game warden for a
moment and then said, "It's the truth
Mr.Government man, I'll show you. It really works."
"Okay," said the game warden, " I've GOT to see this!"
The hillbilly poured the fish into the lake and
stood and waited. After several minutes, the game warden
turned to him and said, "Well?"
"Well, what?" said the hillbilly.
The warden said, "When are you going to call them back?"
The hillbilly said, "Call who back?"
"The FISH!" replied the warden.
"What fish?" answered the hillbilly.
Them Georgia boys may not be as smart as some city
slickers, but they aren't as dumb as most government employees..
