Bubba and Billie Bob had been looking for a way to get rich quick. Bubba had read about all the money that could be made in the fish farming industry, and convinced his cousin Billie Bob to loan him his life savings to start a new fish farm. In turn, he would repay the loan, and half the profits with the first crop.
Six months went by, and no word from Bubba, so Billie Bob went down to the fish farm to see what was up.
Bubba explained that he had bought some prime ground, plowed straight furrows, irrigated every day, but all the fish he'd planted had died.
BillieBob was furious. He told his cousin he thought he had to be the stupidest fish farmer in the world. He glared at the rows of tails sticking up out of the dirt.
The problem was obvious to him, he shouted. The fish had been planted face down in the field, and any idiot would have known they should have been planted face up, so they wouldn't suffocate !
You can always tell a fisherman. You just can't tell him much.
