The 2004 election results were so close that the Electoral College vote was tied, and Congress couldn't break the deadlock. The Supreme Court decided they'd better not make the decision themselves, so they Sent Bush and Kerry to a frozen lake in northern Wisconsin to have an Ice fishing contest. No one was allowed to accompany them, and they were on their honor to let the guy who caught the most fish in five days become president. On the first day they went out in different directions. Bush came Back with ten fish. Kerry caught none. On the second day, Bush caught Twenty fish and again Kerry came back empty handed. When Bush brought back 25 fish on day three and Kerry still hadn't caught any, Kerry got worried and telephoned Edwards for advice. "He's probably cheating," suggested the VP hopeful. "I hadn't thought of that," said Kerry. "You're probably right. What do we do?" Edwards suggested that instead of going fishing the next day, Kerry follow Bush to see what he was doing. At the end of day 4, Kerry called Edwards and told him, "you were right, John, Bush is cheating." "What's he doing?" asked Edwards. "He's cutting holes in the ice!"
