I like this one...

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 t heir 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 wit h fishing. Just spy on him and see just how he is cheating.’

The next night (after John Mc. returns with 50 fish), Harry asked 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

Waiting to go...

It's almost time for my trip across the pond and I'm on leave enjoying the last couple of days before I head out. Erm and I headed to Myrtle Beach this last weekend and enjoyed a night to ourselves and this weekend should be a great one, spent with all the kids.

The new camera is still fun...200 pictures taken to date, but I've not gotten very adventurous yet, sticking with the "easy" mode. I've yet to record a single video except the first one below, but will do so over there.

I've spent quality time with the kiddo playing Rainbow Six and football on the XBox or PS2. Work is pretty much over for now and I'm restless at home, but enjoying the "honey-dos" prior to taking off.

Sean started middle school yesterday and likes it. I told him listening to 6-7 different voices each day is better than listening to the same voice over and over again. He agrees...

That's all for now...
