Two men are fishing through a hole in the ice, but are having no luck. A boy fishing through a nearby hole keeps pulling in one fish after another. The men ask if they might trade places with the boy. He mumbles agreement, they trade places, but still the men have no luck, while the boy continues to catch fish. One man asks the boy what his secret is. The boys mumbles an incoherent answer. The man can't understand him, asks boy to repeat answer. Finally the boy spits something into one hand and repeats loudly: "You've got to keep your worms warm!"
