A Good Place to Fish

old man fishing in a puddle joke

I watched with bemusement as the old man sat outside O'Donnells in the pouring rain, dangling a fishing rod in a large puddle that had formed.

"What are you doing?" I asked.

"Fishing," replied the man.

Poor old fool, I thought, and invited the him into the pub for a drink.  He accepted gratefully.

"So," I teased as we made ourselves comfortable next to a roaring fire.  "How many have you caught today?"

"You're the eighth."
