The Redneck and the Game Warden

A redneck was stopped by a game warden in Southern Texas 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 redneck. 'I ain't got none of them there licenses. You must understand, these here are my pet fish'

'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 takes 'em home.'

'That's a bunch of hooey! Fish can't do that.'

The redneck looked at the warden for a moment and then said, 'It's the truth Mr.. Government Man. I'll show ya. It really works.' 'O. K.', said the warden. 'I've got to see this!'

The redneck poured the fish into the lake and stood and waited. After several minutes, the warden says, 'Well?'

'Well, what?,' says the redneck.

The warden says, 'When are you going to call them back?'

'Call who back?'

'The FISH,' replied the warden!

'What fish?,' replied the redneck. ...........

Moral of the story: We may not be as smart as some city slickers, but we ain't as dumb as some of them liberal government employees

You can say what you want about the South, but you never hear of anyone retiring and moving north.

Well, it lifted my spirits this afternoon. Hope it works for you, too.


  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Love this post. It's excellent :) Aloha

  2. ROFL! I LOVE this! And it's true! NOBODY moves NORTH! (they'd be crazy!)

  3. Wish I had the fish trained to get in our boat....

    I won't be moving North, but it is common for persons who retire here to move back NOrth where family is, when they become incapacitated.

  4. Yep, made me smile too ... and I'm one of those government employees ;-)

    Best wishes,


  5. Thom-thanks for coming was a good thing to see your blog, too.

    Melli-I laughed when I read it, too

    NW1-Yep...I wonder where I'll go. Maybe Houston where my daughter lives.


    Skeeter-So's my other daughter.
