The fishing trip

A grandfather and grandson are away on a fishing trip. They get up early in the morning and go out in the boat. They manage to catch a few nice sized bass before going in for breakfast.

While eating breakfast the boy turns to his grandfather and says, "Grandpa, these plates are kind of dirty."

The grandfather replies, "Well, they're as clean as cold water can get 'em."

Satisfied with the response the boy continues to eat his bacon and eggs.

The two go out in the boat again for a couple hours and this time they get a few bites, but don't catch anything. They come back into the cottage and have some lunch. The boy looks at his plate and says to his grandfather, "This plate is filthy, Grandpa."

The grandfather responds sternly, "Look, that's as clean as cold water can get 'em. Just eat your sandwich."

They boy sighs and continues to eat quietly.

In the afternoon the two go out in the boat one last time. They don't even get a bite.

Feeling tired, the two return to the cottage remembering that the day wasn't a total loss. The grandfather cooks up the bass from the morning and puts on the radio for a little while.

When they sit down to eat the well seasoned bass, the boy exclaims, "Eww grandpa, these plates are disgusting!"

The grandfather, now fed up with his grandson's tone replies, "How many times do I have to tell you? They're as clean as cold water can get them! Now sit down and eat!"

The boy reluctantly eats his meal and afterwards goes outside on the deck where his grandfather is already smoking his nightly cigar.

The two are standing quietly looking up at the night sky when suddenly the grandfather's beagle comes running up and starts humping the boy's leg.

The grandfather swats the dog and yells, "God dammit Cold Water, get down off him!"
