So when Buddy came back from his latest fishing trip, he told Puddy...
"You wouldn't believe, but this time in Bahamas I caught a 500 pound Herring."
To this Puddy replied" That's nothing, last time I fished in da Bahamas, I pulled up an old lantern from a sunken American ship.... and the candle was still burning !"
They both looked at each other, knowing that the other was lying.
Finally, Puddy said, "Look Buddy, if you take 450 pounds from off your herring.... I'll blow out my candle !"
