Wisconsin Duck Hunters...
HAVE YOU HEARD ABOUT THE TWO DUCK HUNTERS FROM
WISCONSIN? ABSOLUTELY A TRUE STORY HEARD ON A WISCONSIN
RADIO STATION REPORTING ON THE INCIDENT.
A guy buys a new Lincoln Navigator for $42,500.00 (with monthly
payments of $560.00). He and a friend go duck hunting in upper Wisconsin.
It's mid-winter; and of course all of the lakes are frozen. These two guys go
out on the ice with their GUNS, a DOG, and of course the new NAVIGATOR.
They decide they want to make a natural looking open water area for the
ducks to focus on, something for the decoys to float on.
Now making a hole in the ice large enough to invite a passing duck, is going
to take a little more power than the average drill auger can produce. So, out
of the back of the new Navigator comes a stick of dynamite with a short 40
second-fuse. Now our two Rocket Scientists, afraid they might slip on the ice
while trying to run away after lighting the fuse (and becoming toast, along with
the Navigator), decide on the following course of action: They light the 40
second fuse; then, with a mighty thrust, they throw the stick of dynamite as far
away as possible.
Remember a couple of paragraphs back when I mentioned the
NAVIGATOR, the GUNS, and the DOG....???
Let's talk about the dog: A highly trained Black Lab used for RETRIEVING;
especially things thrown by the owner. You guessed it: the dog takes off
across the ice at a high rate of speed and grabs the stick of dynamite, with
the burning 40-second fuse, just as it hits the ice. The two men swallow, blink,
start waving their arms and, with veins in their necks swelling to resemble
stalks of rhubarb, scream and holler at the dog to stop.
The dog, now apparently cheered on by his master, keeps coming. One
hunter panics, grabs the shotgun and shoots the dog. The shotgun is loaded
with #8 bird shot, hardly big enough to stop a Black Lab. The dog stops for a
moment, slightly confused, then continues on. Another shot, and this time the
dog, still standing, becomes really confused and of course terrified, thinks
these two geniuses have gone insane. The dog takes off to find cover,
UNDER the brand new Navigator.
The men continue to scream as they run. The red hot exhaust pipe on the
truck touches the dog's rear end, he yelps, drops the dynamite under the
truck and takes off after his master.
Then BOOOOOOOOOOOM ! ! !
The truck is blown to bits and sinks to the bottom of the lake, leaving the
two idiots standing there with "I can't believe this just happened" looks on
their faces. The insurance company says that sinking a vehicle in a lake by
illegal use of explosives is NOT COVERED by the policy. (And he still had yet
to make the first of those $560.00 a month payments.)
The dog is okay. . .doing fine.
