Teach A Mayor To Fish…

, , , , | Working | July 13, 2018

This happened quite a few years ago and was told to me by my father. It’s from before we cared about things like environmental damage.

The lake near my grandmother’s town had a lot of one species of fish in it and as a result was not well-loved by the local fishermen. One year the town got a fisherman for a mayor and he decided to use a good chunk of their budget to buy a huge number of live fish to release and make all the fishermen happy. They had a good year fishing that year and expected the next year to be the same.

The next year they had a lake filled with very fat pike. The mayor didn’t get re-elected in the next election.
