A redneck was stopped by a game warden in Central
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
those
fish?'

'Naw, sir', replied the redneck. 'I
ain't got none of them there
licenses. You must understand,
these here are my pet fish.'

'Pet fish?'

'Yeah.. Every night, I take these here fish down to
the lake and let 'em
swim 'round for awhile. 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….

Moral of the story: We may not
be as smart as some city slickers, but
we ain't as dumb as some
government employees.

You can say what you want about the
South, but you never hear of anyone
retiring and moving
north
