Velma's been sending me joke emails to share. Since I got a laugh out of it I thought I'd pass it on to you.
After last week and all the unfortunate drama we need a break. I'm hoping that the climate in Japan calms down. First the Earthquake, then the Tsunami, then the news where one of the Fukushima Reactors exploded and they're basically "sacrificing" it by filling it with sea water to hold off a melt down... finally there was a volcano in the south of Japan that erupted, all within three days. My heart goes out to the Japanese People with hope they'll be able to catch a break and begin to heal after whole cities were simply erased.
With one eye on the news from Japan, the other on the news from the Middle East, and I will hold off a third eye because then I'd be a three eyed Springfield Fish.
Subject: Pet Fish
A hillbilly was stopped by a game warden in East Tennessee 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 hillbilly. I ain't got none of them there licenses. You must understand, these here are my 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 hillbilly 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 hillbilly poured the fish into the lake and stood and waited. After several minutes, the warden says, 'Well?'
'Well, what?,' says the hillbilly.
The warden says, 'When are you going to call them back?' Call who back?'
'The FISH,' replied the warden!
'What fish?, replied the hillbilly. .............
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.
