Rough Fishing

Jerry had an awful day fishing on the lake. He sat in the blazing sun all day and didn’t even get a nibble.

On his way home, he stopped at the fish monger’s. He told the man behind the counter, “Can you get me four large catfish, but don’t bother wrapping them up.”

“Why don’t you want them wrapped, sir?” asked the young salesman.

“Because I want my wife to think that I caught them,” explained Jerry.

“Oh, I see, sir,” the salesman said with a smile. “In that case, I suggest that you take the orange roughy.”

“Why is that?” asked Jerry.

“Because your wife came in earlier today and said that if you should come in, I should tell you to take orange roughy because she would prefer it for tonight’s supper.”
