A man gets stopped by a game warden with his basket full of fish.

“Do you have a permit for all these fish?” the warden asks.

“No sir. These are all my pet fish,” the man replies.

“Your pet fish? How’s that?”

“Well, every night I take all my pet fish for a walk to the lake, I let them swim for about a half hour, and then I whistle and they all come back and jump in my basket and we go home. We do this every night,” the man says.

“That’s just a crock of lies!”

“Here, I’ll show you,” the man says, and releases the fish into the lake.

“This I’ve got to see,” says the warden.

Five minutes pass and the warden is curious.


“What?” says the man.

“The fish! Where are your pet fish?”

The man looks at the warden confused. “What fish?”
