Two men from the city decided to head to the mountains in the middle of winter to do some ice fishing. They’d heard from friends how good it was so they decided to take advantage of the cold weather and head to a frozen lake.
Just before they got to the lake they stopped at a little bait shop and got all their tackle. One of them said: “We’re gonna need an ice pick.”
So they got that and took off. In less than two hours, one of them was back at the shop and said: “We’re gonna need another dozen ice picks.”
The worker in the shop wanted to ask some questions, but he didn’t, so he sold him the picks and the man left. In about an hour, he was back and said: “We’re gonna need all the ice picks you’ve got.”
The worker couldn’t stand it any longer so he asked: “By the way, how are you fellows doing?”
“Not very well at all,” he answered. “We haven’t even got the boat in the water yet.”
