A man is walking up from the pond carrying a bucket containing a medium sized bass. A conservation agent stops him and asks to see his fishing license. "I don't need one" the man replied. The agent insisted that he did indeed. But the man said," I wasn't fishing, my fish lives in a small tank at home and likes to exercise in a larger area so I bring him down here once in a while. When he's done I take him home just as I'm doing today. He's a pet". Well, the agent just had to see this for himself so they went back down to the pond and the man dumped fish and water in. After a few minutes of staring at the water the agent asked, "when will your fish be back?" The man replied, "what fish?"
