The Last Laugh

American Senior - - NEWS -

A game war­den spot­ted a man car­ry­ing a bucket of lob­sters one morn­ing while pa­trolling the beach. The game war­den ap­proached him: “I as­sume you have a per­mit for those lob­sters. Poach­ing lob­sters is a se­ri­ous of­fense.”

The man re­sponded, “You’ve got it all wrong! These lob­sters are my pets and ev­ery morn­ing, I take them out for some ex­er­cise. I let them swim around in the ocean for a few min­utes and then when I whis­tle, they come back in.”

The game war­den looked at the man skep­ti­cally and said, “Okay then, prove it.”

The man threw the lob­sters into the ocean, then they both stood there wait­ing. Af­ter a cou­ple min­utes, the game war­den looked at the man and said, “That’s long enough, now whis­tle your lob­sters back in.”

The man turned to the game war­den and said, “Lob­sters? What lob­sters?”
