Southern boy





A Southern boy was stopped by a game

warden in Central Georgia 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

Southern boy.. '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.'



"OK.", said the warden.

"'I've got to see

this!"



The Southern boy 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?', asked the

Southerner.



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.

I think I'm related to that guy!!!

When I was about 7 dad and I stopped and ate breakfast at a diner.  Dad asked a game warden if we could sit and share a meal with him.

About half way through my pancakes I remembered a question I had been meaning to ask him so I blurted out, "Dad, why do you keep a roll of dynamite fuse in your tackle box?"

With me and the game warden looking on, "That is not dynamite fuse son, that is just thick fishing line."

When I was a teenager, me, two brothers, and three other guys were fishing when a warden pulled up. My brother told us to take the car and go home when he was out of sight. Then my brother broke into a full run down the river bank with the warden hot on his heels. We got into the car and left. That night, my brother came home and explained.

When the warden caught him and asked why he was running, he stated... "I am the only one with fishing license".

Probably...that way the game warden could follow him by seeing the black socks flashing through the underbrush  :-D
