A good old Arkansas boy won a bass boat in a raffle. He brought it home to his wife, who said, “what you gonna do with that bass boat? There ain’t no water deep enough to float a boat within a hundred miles of here.

“I won it, I’m gonna keep it,” the man said.

Several days later his brother came over to visit. He saw his sister-in-law, but not his brother, so he asked where he was.

“Oh, he’s out there in his bass boat.” She pointed towards a dusty field behind the house.

The brother went out behind the house and saw his brother in the middle of the field, sitting in the boat, with dust blowing around him and a fishing rod in his hand.

“What you doin’ out there in that dusty field?” The brother asked.

“I’m fishin’. What’s it look like I’m doin’?”

“You know, it’s people like you that give the rest of us from Arkansas a bad name, makin’ everybody think we’re stupid! If I could swim I’d come out there and whip you!”
