Geek Jokes
A fly fisherman caught a brown salmon. He exclaimed he had never seen a brown salmon before. The Salmon told him he was very rare but is family called him "Rusty." A couple of years later the fisherman caught him again and said, "Where have you been?" Rusty said he had been on vacation with extended family on a ship wreck in the bottom of the Atlantic where they had partied, lounged on deck chairs, and even wrote poetry. In fact he was publishing a book of poetry next month. The fisherman said "I would like to read your poetry. What's the title?" Rusty replied, "The Titanic Verses of Salmon Rusty."

—Dick Sanner, Blackpool, Maine
