I am sure that in some parts of the country, on this day, there is someone sitting in an ice house, in the middle of a lake. Over a wee hole, the person is trying to catch fish.
Or maybe they are just like these guys?
Billy Bob and his family decided to go ice fishing.
So they loaded up all their tackle and headed up north and found a lake where they could go ice fishing with a tackle shop nearby in case they needed anything.
When they got there the man behind the counter said they'd need ice picks for breaking the ice.
After learning they were $10 each Billy Bob said they'd take 2.
About an hour later Billy comes up to the shop and asks if he can buy another five ice picks.
Confused, the man sells him the picks.
About 4 hours later Billy staggers into the shop sweat pouring from his body and asks if he can buy the man's remaining stock of ice picks.
Unable to contain his curiosity any longer the man asks what Billy could possibly be doing with so many ice picks?
Billy looks and the man and says with a sigh that he never knew ice fishing was so much work.
"We've been chopping and chopping for hours and we just now got the boat launched! "
