Guy walks up to Ranger Bob and says" I wanted to go fishing on Big Bear Lake, so I found an Indian guide in town who had a sign on his place that said Catch your Limit of Walleye Guaranteed . We went out to the middle and this guide, Ralph Runningdeer, opens his tacklebox and pulls out a stick of dynamite. He lights it off his cigar and throws it in the lake. Six seconds later the boat jumps a foot in the air and a dozen Walleye come floatin to the surface, along with 7 or 8 Bluegill, a catfish and a rubber tire." The Ranger frowns and promises he'll put an end to this.

The next day Ranger Bob dons a clever disguise, positions his assistant Ranger Bill in the bushes by the Lake with a videocamera, and charters Ralph Runningdeer to take him fishing. Sure enough, they get to the middle of the lake and Ralph opens his box to produce a stick of dynamite with a short fuse."Hold it right there,Ralph" says Ranger Bob." I am a US Forest Ranger and I have a man in the bushes filming you right now. You are under arrest." Ralph stares at the Ranger about 5 seconds, calmly lights the fuse off his cigar and hands the dynamite to Bob.

"Ranger Bob," says Ralph," do you wanna talk or fish?"
