Here is an old joke, retold:

Two men are out on a froken lake ice fishing. One man had
been out on the lake for over two hours and he hasn't gotten
a single bite. The other man, just about a dozen feet away,
had been on the lake for about half an hour, and he already
had almost a bucket-full.

This disturbed the other man greatly, so he walked over to
him and asked him, "Excuse me, sir, but I'd been out 'ere fer
a mighty long time and I ain't caught nuthin'. How do you
catch all them fish?"

The other man looked at him and said,

"What did you say?"

"Mummhummmummhummmumnmunhumm," mumbled the busy fisherman.

"Sir, you got a speech impediment? I can't here a darn word
yer saying!"

The fisherman pointed his finger up, indicating to wait
a minute. He pulled and reeled in his line and pulled and
reeled in, and he cuaght another fish.

"OK, darn it. Either tell me now or else," said the angry

As the 'expert' removed the fish from the hook, he looked at
the unfortuate man standing beside him. He put the fishing
pole down and took a large wad of something out of his mouth.

"You have the keep the worms warm," he answered.
