It was a cold winter day when an old man walked out onto a frozen Lake Erie, cut a hole in the ice, dropped in his fishing line and began waiting for a fish to bite.
He was there for almost an hour without even a nibble when a young boy walked out onto the ice, cut a hole in the ice not too far from the old man and dropped in his fishing line. It only took about a minute. WHAM! A largemouth bass hit his hook and the boy pulled in the fish. The old man couldn’t believe it but figured it was just luck. But the boy dropped in his line and again within just a few minutes pulled in another one.
He went to the boy and said, “Son, I’ve been here for over an hour without even a nibble. You have been here only a few minutes and have caught two fish! How do you do it?” To which the boy responded, “Roo raf roo reep ra rums rarm.”
“What was that you said?” the old man asked. Again the boy responded, “Roo raf roo reep ra rums rarm.”
“Look, son” said the old man, “I can’t understand a word you’re saying.”
So the boy spit a wad into his hands and said, “You have to keep the worms warm!”
