Riddle: Why ought a fisherman to be very wealthy?
I love riddles with word games! You know, Shakespeare was also a fan of pun. After this trivial information, we can move on to understanding the answer.
Why does a fisherman need to be rich? Because everything he earns is his net profit. The word “net” here also refers to the word fishing net.
So the fisherman wins with the fishing net. Got it?
So the word net refers to both net profit and fishing net. I admit it’s a bit of a corny joke. But still, it’s fun!
Answer: Because his is all net profit.
