Candidates went Ice Fishing??

2 posts in this topic

The Presidential election was too close to call. Neither the Republican

candidate nor the Democratic candidate had enough votes to win. There was

much talk about ballot recounting, court challenges, etc., but a

week-long ice fishing competition seemed the sportsmanlike way to settle

things. The candidate that caught the most fish at the end of the week would

win the election.

Therefore, it was decided that there should be an ice fishing contest

between the two candidates to determine the winner.

After much of back and forth discussion, it was decided that the contest

take place on a remote frozen lake in northern Minnesota ..

There were to be no observers present, and both men were to be sent out

separately on this isolated lake and return at 5 P.M. with their catch for

counting and verification by a team of neutral parties. At the end of the

first day, John Mc. returned to the starting line and he had ten fish.

Soon, Obama returned and had no fish. Well, everyone assumed he was just

having another 'bad hair' day or something and hopefully, he would catch up

the next day.

At the end of the 2nd day John Mc. came in with 20 fish and Obama came in

again with none.

That evening, Harry Reid got together secretly with Obama and said, 'Obama,

I think John Mc. is a low-life, cheatin' son-of-a-gun. I want you to go out

tomorrow and don't even bother with fishing. Just spy on him and see just

how he is cheating.'

The next night (after John Mc. returns with 50 fish), Harry said to Obama,

'Well, tell me, how is John Mc. cheating?'

Obama replied, 'Harry, you're not going to believe this, but he's cutting

holes in the ice.'

Experience Counts!

    • I blame the Republicans National Committee for not grooming better candidates.     Are you "Pro-Life" or "Pro-choice" ?  
    • Neighbor Guy, you shoot a 20 gauge for smaller birds like bufflehead and teal?
    • Wasn't that about the time of the split and reorganization?   I would bet that the file hierarchy changed so the link is broken.       You can use the date on there as a guide and look back in the topics list by selecting old pages.  For example the "smoked duck marinade" thread is on page 152.    Here is the broken link And here is the working link I don't see any obvious way to convert the links so if there is one that you want to read, make note of the date and make a few tries in the topic list.  It only took me like three or four to find the duck one.     Shack seems to have found better stuff to do than hang around here..   Someone with nothing to do could redo the list.      Be a good day's work to go through the 158 pages.   Maybe after snow flies.  
    • You might try calling shorelandr.   When I called them (some years ago) they were very helpful.   Second choice would be take it to a good auto parts store.  I bet they can tell you what it is and sell you another.
    • B & B in Cloquet has whole porkbutt for $1.29 lb this week if you need to fill the freezer.
    • -----------------------   Some decoy porn for guys who can appreciate a hand carved bird.   
    • The first hand report from LOW is its very quiet up here. I was told there were redheads and cans on the bay last weekend. Not much moving here at all today. The marina mallards and even a few bluewings are still hanging around. But most of what was tolling the decoys this morning was buffleheads. Most birds in pairs or singles. No real flocks. Very little in the way of shooting by me or anyone else. 
    • might be the worst "tailgate shot" ever. 4-buffleheads and a ringer in there all cozied up together. 
    • Specks showed up on the the sodak border this morning. Wind forecast to turn north. Could bring some fun and be one of the first real duck migration days.
