A Jack Daniels Fishing Story

19 August 2011

I went fishing this morning, but after a short
time I ran out of worms. Then, out of the
corner of my eye, I saw a cottonmouth with
a frog in his mouth.

“Frogs are good bass bait,” I thought to myself.

Knowing the snake couldn’t bite me with the frog
in his mouth, I grabbed him right behind the head,
took the frog, and put it in my bait bucket.

Just then, I realized I had a problem: how was I
going to release the snake without getting bit?

So, I grabbed my bottle of Jack Daniels and poured
a little whiskey in its mouth. The snake’s eyes rolled
back and he went limp.

I released him into the lake without incident and
carried on fishing using the frog.

A little later, I felt a nudge at my foot. There was that
same snake with two more frogs in its mouth.

Life is good in the South.
