I saw this joke online - remember that no actual fish were harmed - it is just a joke:
The Presidential election was too close to call. Neither the Republican candidate nor the Democratic candidate had enough votes to win. There was much talk about ballot recounting, court challenges, etc., but a week-long ice fishing competition seemed to be the sportsmanlike way to settle things. The candidate who caught the most fish at the end of the week would win the election. Therefore, it was decided to have an ice fishing contest between the two candidates to determine the winner. After much back and forth discussion, it was decided that the contest would take place on a remote, frozen lake in northern Minnesota. No observers would be present, and both men would be sent out separately on this isolated lake, then return at 5 P.M. with their catch for counting and verification by a team of neutral parties. At the end of the first day, John McCain returned to the starting line, and he had ten fish. Soon, Obama returned and had no fish. Well, everyone assumed he was just having a 'bad hair' day or something and hopefully, he would catch up the next day. At the end of the 2nd day, John Mc. returned with 20 fish, and Obama came in again with none. That evening, Harry Reid got together secretly with Obama and said, 'Obama, I think John Mc. is a low-life, cheatin' son-of-a-gun. I want you to go out tomorrow and don't even bother with fishing. Just spy on him and see just how he is cheating. 'The next night (after John Mc. returns with 50 fish), Harry said to Obama, 'Well, tell me, how is John Mc. cheating?' Obama replied, 'Harry, you're not going to believe this, .......but he's cutting holes in the ice.'
