Shawn and Curt

Two brothers, Shawn and Curt, went fishing. Every time Shawn threw his hook in, he caught a fish, but Curt didn’t have the same success.

By the end of the day, Shawn had caught twelve fish, but Curt had caught nothing.


The next day, Curt woke up very early in the morning, dressed in Shawn’s clothes, and carried Shawn’s rod. He went to the river and sat where Shawn normally sat. He threw the hook in and waited.

Darkness cleared and the sun rose. After about two hours of waiting, a fish popped out and asked him, “Where is Shawn?”
