Realistic Fishing Proverb

Give a man a fish and he will eat all day.

Teach a man to fish and he will go out and buy expensive fishing equipment, stupid-looking clothes, a sports utility vehicle, travel 1000 km to the "hottest" fishing spot and stand waist-deep in cold water so he can try to outsmart a fish.

Average cost per fish: R3950.68

Doctor's Bill

A friend went to see Doctor Wilson the other day, and the he was not very sympathetic with her aches and pains.

"You'll just have to learn to live it," he said.

When she got her bill for R390, she sent it back, with the notation, "You'll just have to learn to live without it!"

Matchmaker

Barbie, a waitress, decided to put her matchmaking skills to the test with our mutual friend Mike. She figured that Sandy, another customer who seemed to have much in common with Mike, would be an ideal date.

One day Mike came into the restaurant when Sandy was also there. Barbie dragged Mike over to Sandy's table and introduced the two. Then she watched, in amazement, as Mike put his arm around the young woman and said in his best mock-seductive voice, "Hellooooh, Sandy."

"You guys know each other?" Barbie asked.

"We sure do," said Mike. "She's my sister."
