Little Eddy and his mum were digging for bait in the garden. Uncovering a many-legged creature, Eddy proudly dangled it before his mom.

“It’s not?” Eddy asked, his eyes wide. “What planet is it from?”

Three fishermen were fishing when they came upon a mermaid. The mermaid offered them one wish each so the first fisherman said: “Double my IQ”. The mermaid did it and to his surprise he started reciting Shakespeare. The second fisherman said: “Triple my IQ” and sure enough the mermaid did it and amazingly he started doing math problems he didn't know existed. The third fisherman was so impressed he asked the mermaid to quadruple his IQ. The mermaid said: “Are you sure about this? It will change your whole life.” The fisherman excitingly said: “Yes”. The mermaid turned him into a woman.

One day, Frank and Bob were out fishing.

A funeral service passes over the bridge they’re fishing near, and Bob takes off his hat and puts it over his heart. He does this until the funeral service passes by.

Frank then said: “Gee Bob, I didn’t know you had it in you!”

Bob then replies: “It’s the least I could do. After all, I was married to her for 30 years.”
