One day the sun was shinning brightly and the optimist said, "Great day, eh?"

The pessimist said, "The stupid sun will burn the crops."

The next day it rained. Again the optimist tried to engage his friend, but the pessimist's only response was: "Stinking rain will wash out all the seed!"

So the optimist took his friend duck hunting, which he loved. After the first duck was shot the optimist dispatched his dog to fetch the duck. The dog ran on top of the water, picked up the duck and ran back.

The optimist exclaimed "Did you see that?"

The pessimist replied, "Dog can't swim, eh?"
