Prove it

The fisheries officer finally manages to catch the poaching local red-handed, carrying two lobsters caught after season. "Aha!" exclaims the officer in delight, "I have you now for poaching!"

"What poaching?" protests the local. "These are pet lobsters. I just take them down to the water every day, let them swim for an hour. Then I whistle, and they come back to me."

The officer is having just a little bit of difficulty swallowing this tale: so the two of them go back to the wharf and place the lobsters in the water. After an hour the officer says to the local, "Whistle!"

"Whistle for what?"

"For the lobsters."

"What lobsters?"
