A Lobster Tale

A poor man was poaching lobsters at a beach to feed himself.

A game warden, his first day on the job, saw him and said, "I’m going to have to arrest you. Poaching is illegal."

"I’m not poaching lobsters," the man replied. "These are my pets. I’m exercising them. I throw them into the sea, then whistle, and they come back."

"This I gotta see! Show me!" the warden said in disbelief.

The man threw the lobsters into the water, and then started to walk away.

"Wait!" the warden shouted. "Don’t you have to whistle to call your lobsters back?"

The man looked at the warden, paused, and said, "What lobsters?"

Moral of the Story: Sometimes distraction is the best strategy.
