A farmer in the country noticed that a
gentleman would fish at the lake (close
to the farmer's house) and would always
leave with a stringer full of fish. The
fellow had a boat but a fishing pole was
not to be seen.
The farmer mentioned the situation to the
lake ranger. The ranger then started
watching this man and all that the farmer
said was true! The man would arrive at
the lake in the morning and by early
afternoon, he had a stringer full of fish.
The ranger dressed like a fisherman one
day and approached the man. They exchanged
pleasantries and the stranger asked the
ranger in disguise to come fish with him.
They boated for 45 minutes and arrived at
a secluded spot. The stranger then pulled
out a stick of dynamite.
Ranger: "I'm going to have to place you
under arrest - I am a Ranger and you are
The stranger calmly lit the stick of
dynamite and handed it to the ranger.
Stranger: "Are you gonna talk or fish?"
