Joke of the Week: Fishing License
Immediately, one of the boys threw his rod down and started running through the woods.
After about a half mile, the fella stopped and stooped over with his hands on his thighs to catch his breath.
With that, the fella pulled out his wallet and gave the game warden a valid fishing license.
"Well, son," the game warden said, "you must be about as dumb as a box of rocks! You don't have to run from me if you have a valid license!"
"Yes sir," replied the young fella. "But my friend back there, well, he doesn't have one."
