Election humor – 2000 presidential election

The Presidential election was too close to call. Neither George W. Bush nor Al Gore had enough votes to win. There was much talk about ballot recounting, hanging chads, butterfly ballots, court challenges, etc., but a week-long ice fishing competition seemed the sportsmanlike way to settle things. The candidate that caught the most fish at the end of the week would win the election. Therefore, it was decided that there should be an ice fishing contest between the two candidates to determine the winner.

After much of back and forth discussion, it was decided that the contest take place on a remote frozen lake in northern Minnesota.

There were to be no observers present, and both men were to be sent out separately on this isolated lake and 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, Gore returned to the starting line and he had ten fish.

Soon, Bush returned and had no fish. Well, everyone assumed he was just having another ‘bad hair’ day or something and hopefully, he would catch up the ext day.

At the end of the 2nd day Gore came in with 20 fish and Bush came in again with none. That evening, Dick Cheney got together secretly with Bush and said, “I think Gore is a low-life, cheatin’ son-of-a-Democrud. 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 Gore returns with 50 fish), Cheney said to Bush, “Well, tell me, how the hell is Gore cheating?”

Bush replied, “Dick, you’re not going to believe this, but that son-of-a-gun is  cutting holes in the ice.”
