Scrapbook - March 2, 2011

Every man on the dock had caught fish. One man caught more fish than the limit. The game warden checked around. He asked each man. "Are these your fish?" Of course everybody said it wasn't theirs. Finally the warden turned to a little boy who had been fishing. "Son," he asked, "have you caught any fish?" "No, sir," replied the boy. "I haven't even had a bite all day." "Here!" said the warden. "These must be yours."
