Ready on Day One. A fairy tale just for you!

Once upon a time, there was a Democratic convention that was too close to call. Neither Democratic presidential candidate had enough votes to win the nomination. Therefore, it was decided that there would be an ice-fishing contest between the two candidates to determine the final winner.

There was much talk about swing states and super-delegates, but a week long ice-fishing competition seemed like just the (Democratic) way to settle things.

The candidate that caught the most fish at the end of the week would win.

It was decided that the contest would take place on a remote and icy lake in North Dakota where there were to be no observers present. Both candidates were to be sent out separately on this remote lake and return daily with their catch for counting and verification.

At the end of the first day, Barack Obama returned to the starting line with ten fish. Soon, Hillary Clinton returned and had zero fish. Everyone assumed she was just having another bad hair day or something and she would catch up the next day.

At the end of the second day Obama came in with 20 fish and Hillary came in again with none.

That evening, Bill got together secretly with Hillary and said, "Hon, I think Barack Obama is a lowlife, cheatin' son-of-a-gun. I want you to go out tomorrow and, instead of fishing, just spy on him. See if he is cheating in any way."

The next night, after Obama returned with 50 more fish, Bill asked Hillary, "Well, what about it? Is Obama cheatin'?"

"He sure is, Bill! He's cutting holes in the ice!"
