    On the wall to the left of the fireplace in The Lodge, there is a fish on the wall you can interact with. It will tell a joke and spit out a few guns. You can use it once everytime you go into The Lodge. (See Edit 2 below) You can see in the screenshot the fish is right inside my reticle.

    Edit: As stated in the comments below as well as finding a few myself, there are a few in other location around the game but this one seems the easiest to farm.

    EDIT 2: I haven't played the game since this DLC so this is info is from users in the comments. Shout out to AngryCalf452023 and FivePartTrilogy for the helpful comments.

    With the addition of Mayhem 2.0, you can re-load your game quicker and the fish will tell you a new joke each re-load. Set the Mayhem level to 10 and just re-roll the modifiers by hitting X on the Mayhem settings tab. That way any loot that the fish spits out has a better chance of being something actually useful.

    vSullyTo streamline further, I had the Shadow over Cursehaven mission active with the active objective "Give excuse to Hammerlock," which you get right when getting to the lodge. This causes Hammerlock to talk to you as you go past him (don't talk to him), preventing the fish from talking. You can still interact with the fish and get guns and quest progress without having to hear the joke.

    So I'd load in, check vending machines and sell crap guns from the last run, then go to the fish and interact while Hammerlock was blathering to get the guns and progress. Then I'd reroll Mayhem modifiers and reload zone, then repeat.

    ChaptxrIf you do the mayhem method, talk to Hammerlock to activate his dialogue then run to the fish and it will skip the jokes. Saves a decent amount of time

    SemocliveAs an FYI, the Talking FIsh decoration you can find that can be placed in your personal quarters does not give progress towards unlocking this achievement.

    Hello guys,

    lot of people speak about reloading, but if you travel to cursehaven - withernot cemetery point and go notrh to courtyard in a house in northeastern corner is another fish, which tells you you a JOKE. Just use this one, fast travel to lodge and in main floor right side of the bar use a second fish, which tells a JOKE. Then back to cursehaven and repeat..it´s few steps and quicker for me than just save, quit and reload.

    HoggyBear08Yeah i came on to post this, In the brewers house that you go to in the mission to get wine for that cool but creepy guy who runs the lodge, I was going to just save/quit the lodge but i think this feels a bit more productive.
