There were two old boys from Alabama who love to fish,
and they wanted to do some ice fishing.
They'd heard about it up in Canada, and they took off
up there. The lake was frozen nicely. They stopped
just before they got to the lake at a little bait shop
and got all their tackle. One of them said, "We're
going to need an ice pick."
So they got that, and they took off. In about two
hours, one of them was back at the shop and said,
"We're going to need another dozen ice picks."
Well, the fellow in the shop wanted to ask some
questions, but he didn't. He sold him the picks, and
the old boy left.
In about an hour, he was back. Said, "We're going to
need all the ice picks you've got."
The bait man couldn't stand it any longer. "By the
way," he asked, "how are you fellows doing?"
"Not very well at all," he said. "We don't even have
the boat in the water yet."
