Chez & Phredeaux Go Fishin'

Mah frien Phredeaux & me, we been fish'n down by de farmpond all day an done run outta night crawlers. Phredeaux, he be bout reddy to leave when he seen a snake wit a big frog in his mouf. He knowed dat dem big sac au lait fish like frogs, so he decided to steal dat froggie. Dat snake, he be a cotton-moufed water moccasin ... so Phreddy had to be real careful or he'd get hisself bit. He snuk up behine de snake and grabbed him roun de haid. Dat ol' snake, it din't lak dat one bit, no. He squirmed'n'hissed and wrapped hisself roun Phreddy's arm try'n to get hisself free ... but Phreddy, him, had a real good grip on his haid, yeh.

Well ... by'n'by, Phreddy commenced t'hollerin fer help, so ah went over dere & pried dat snake's mouf open and got de frog and puts it in Phreddy's baitcan. Now, Phreddy knows dat he cain't let go dat snake or it's gonna bite him good, but he had a plan. He reach into de back pocket of his bib overhauls and pulls out a pint a moonshine likker. He pour some drops into de snakes mouf. Well, dat snake's eyeballs roll back in his haid and his body go real limp like. Wit dat, Phreddy toss dat snake into de deep end dat pond & he goes on back to fishin'.

A while later, we wuz havin' us a lil' nip dat ol' nasty stumpwater white lightning ... and ah dun feel sumpin tappin' on mah barefoot toe. Ah slowly look down and fry mah hide, dare dat water moccasin was ... with two more frogs! Now, don't dat beat all ... HUHHHH????
