Herman Himmelman recently took up fishing and one Sunday he sat in the blazing sun all day without catching a single one. On his way home, Herman stopped at the supermarket and ordered four bass. Herman told the fish salesman, "Pick four large ones out and throw them at me, will you?"

"Because Mrs. Himmelman came in earlier today and said that if you came by, I should tell you to take the trout because that’s what she wants for supper tonight."
