About the Year-2000 US Presidential Election.

Once upon a time, long, long ago there was a Presidential Election that was too close to call. Neither the Republican presidential candidate, nor the Democratic presidential candidate had enough votes to win the election. Therefore, it was decided that there should be an ice-fishing contest between the two candidates to determine the final winner. There was much talk about ballot recounting, court challenges, etc., but a week-long ice fishing competition seemed the fairest way to settle things. The candidate that catches the most fish at the end of the week wins.

After a lot of back and forth discussion, it was decided that the contest would take place on a remote and cold lake in Minnesota. There were to be no observers present since both men were to be sent out on this remote lake and return daily with their catch for counting and verification.

At the end of the first day, Al Gore returns to the starting line and he has 10 fish. Soon, George W. Bush returns and has zero fish. Well, everyone assumes George is just having a little attention deficit problem or something and hopefully he will catch up the next day.

At the end of the 2nd day Al comes in with 20 fish and George comes in again with none. That evening, George Herbert Walker Bush gets together secretly with George W and says "Son, I think Al Gore is a lowlife cheating son-of-a-gun. I'm going to disguise your good buddy, Jim Baker, in a jackass costume and send him out on the lake to act as a spy".

The next night (after Al comes back with 50 fish and George W with none), George Senior gets Jim and George W together and says to Baker: "Well, what about it Jim boy, is Al cheating?"
"He sure is, Mister President, he's cuttin' holes in the ice!"
