my pet fish."
"Pet fish?!" said the warden.

and let them swim around for a while. I whistle and they
jump back into their buckets, and I take 'em home."
"That's a bunch of hooey! Fish can't do that!"

and then said, "Here, I'll show you. It really works."
"Alright. I've GOT to see this!" the game warden replied.
The man poured the fish into the water and stood and

to the man and said, "Well?"
"Well, what?" the man asked.
"When are you going to call them back?" the game
"Call who back?" the man asked.
"What fish?" the man asked.
