The Game Warden…

Bob was stopped by a game warden in Minnesota recently with two buckets of fish leaving a lake well known for its fishing.

The game warden asked Bob, "Do you have a license to catch those fish?"

Bob replied to the game warden, "No, sir. These are my pet fish."

"Pet fish?!" the warden replied.

"Yes, sir. Every night I take these here fish down to the lake and let them swim around for a while. I whistle and they jump back into their buckets, and I take em home."

"That's a bunch of hooey! Fish can't do that!"

Bob looked at the game warden for a moment, and then said, "Oh, they do! Here, I'll show you. It really works."

The game warden was curious now. "OK, I've GOT to see this!." Bob poured the fish in to the lake and stood and waited.

After several minutes, the game warden turned to Bob and said, "Well."

"Well, What?" Bob responded.

"When are you going to call them back?" The game warden prompted.

"Call who back?" The man asked.

"The FISH."

"What fish?" Bob asked.
