Game description

4 fishermen are sitting next to each other, another fisherman sits a little distance away. The 4 fishermen do not seem to be catching anything while the one who is sitting alone is angling in one fish after the other. The first fisherman goes up to the man and asks: „How do you do that? I sit here all day long and don’t catch anything and you catch one fish after the other.“ The fisherman mumbles something with a closed mouth. „What did you say? I can’t understand anything!“. The fisherman mumbles something again which cannot be understood. The first fisherman goes back to his pals and says: „He seems to be a bit strange. I couldn’t understand him!“ Soon the next fisherman goes to the man to ask him his secret. He experiences the same unsuccessful procedure. Finally the last fisherman goes up to the man to ask him his secret. The fisherman grumbles something again. The fisherman gives the man a friendly pat on the back and he seems to swallow something then suddenly becomes quite ill. The secretive fisherman opens his mouth and says loudly and clearly: „I said – you have to keep the worms warm in your mouth!“
