Williams' LodgeHunting Dog Joke
There was a duck hunter from New Jersey who traveled to
the island every winter to hunt. He liked it fine
enough but couldn't get the locals to accept him as a
hunter of their caliber. Then he found a retriever
that could walk on water. This was the ticket.
He would finally impress these guys.
He brought the dog down and went hunting. After a few hours they were able to shoot some ducks. Here was the big moment. He sent the dog out and it trotted across the water with no problems, picked up the ducks and returned over and over again without getting wet. The Jersey hunter looked at his hosts after the demonstration was over with a big smile on his face. "Well? How about that?" The Island hunters shook their heads in pity. When the Jersey hunter ask what the problem was one finally spoke up. "You poor guy. That dog can't swim. Can he?"
