Lucky Novice

A pair of shaggy fishermen took to the sea last week, smoked Havana cigars and trolled peacefully for marlin in politically storm-tossed waters. The big fishermen: Cuban Premier Fidel Castro and barebacked Economic Commissar Ernesto (Che) Guevara. The event was the annual Hemingway Tournament, and the cooperative fish acted like loyal members of the 26th of July Movement. Castro boated a sailfish and a marlin on the first day, two marlin on the second and another marlin on the third—which gave him first place in a field of 150. Said Castro to loser Ernest Hemingway: "I am a novice at fishing." Replied Papa, who had caught no fish: "You are a lucky novice."
