Two dumb fishermen decided to rent a boat on a lake for their favorite sport.

After fishing for four hours around the lake with no luck at all, they decided to try one more spot before calling it quits.

Suddenly some luck kicked in, and they caught their limit of fish inside of twenty minutes.

Paul said, “Hey we should mark this spot, so next time we will know where to come.”

Jim said “That’s a good idea” and he took out a can of spray paint and made a large X on the floor of the boat - to mark the spot.

Paul looked at Jim confused and asked, “Why did you do that? Now anyone who rents this boat will know where to fish.”
