    Fishing Story
    I went fishing this morning. But after a short time

    I ran out of worms. Then I saw a rattlesnake with
    a frog in its mouth. Frogs are good bass bait.

    Knowing the snake couldn't bite me with the
    frog in its mouth, I grabbed it right behind the
    head, took the frog, and put it in my bait bucket.
    Now the dilemma was how to release the snake

    without getting bit. So, I grabbed my bottle of
    Jack Daniel's and poured a little whiskey in its
    mouth. Its eyes rolled back, and it went limp. I
    released the snake into the lake without incident
    and carried on fishing, using the frog.

    Not long after I felt a nudge on my foot. It was that darn
    snake with two more frogs. Life is good in Pennsylvania.
