Something Fishy

a friend of mine went into Cabela's to buy a rod and reel for her grandson's birthday. She doesn't know which one to get so she just grabs one and goes over to the counter. A Cabela's associate is standing there wearing dark shades. She says, 'Excuse me, sir. Can you tell me anything about this rod and reel?' He says, 'Ma'am, I'm completely blind; but if you'll drop it on the counter, I can tell you everything from the sound it makes. She doesn't believe him but drops it on the counter anyway. He says, 'That's a six-foot Shakespeare graphite rod with a Zebco 404 reel and 10-LB. Test line. It's a good all around combination; and it's on sale this week for only $20.00.' She says, 'It's amazing that you can tell all that just by the sound of it dropping on the counter. I'll take it!' As she opens her purse, her credit card drops on the floor. 'Oh, that sounds like a Master Card,' he says. She bends down to pick it up and accidentally farts. At first she is really embarrassed, but then realizes there is no way the blind clerk could tell it was she who tooted. Being blind, he wouldn't know that she was the only person around? The man rings up the sale and says, 'That'll be $34.50 please.' The woman is totally confused by this and asks, 'Didn't you tell me the rod and reel were on sale for $20.00? How did you get $34.50? He replies, 'Yes, ma'am. The rod and reel is $20.00, but the Duck Call is $11.00 and the Catfish Bait is $3.50. isn't that the strangest thing??? butter or margarine???

Good one. He's really be confused if my wife blew her nose. He'd think the circus was in town & the elephants had just walked by. Butter, clog the veins- I wanna die youngish.

Definitely butter, Sconi. Margarine is made of chemical compounds - and did you know, without the artificial colouring and bleaching agents, it's actually black in its naked form? Definitely butter ... butter is better ...

I prefer butter, and while I'm at it I say "Let them eat cake!" This was very good. Everyone needs a little reality check every once in a while. So I guess you reeled me in on this one. I did think it was just a little fishy but I wanted to see if I could catch a whopper.
