Two hunters from Wisconsin -- (true story)
This is from a radio program, a true report of an incident in
> A guy buys a brand new Lincoln Navigator truck for $42,500 and has $560
> monthly payments. He and a friend go duck hunting in winter, and of
> course all the lakes are frozen. These two guys go out on the lake with
> their guns, a dog, and of course the new Vehicle. They drive out onto
> the lake ice and get ready. >
> Now, they want to make some kind of a natural landing area for the
> ducks, something for the decoys to float on. In order to make a hole
> large enough to look like something a wandering duck would fly down and
> land on, it's going to take a little more effort than an ice hole drill.
> So, out of the back of the new Navigator truck comes a stick of dynamite
> with a short, 40-second fuse.
> Now these two Rocket Scientists do take into consideration that they
> want to place the stick of dynamite on the ice at a location far from
> where they are standing (and the new Navigator truck), because they
> don't want to take the risk of slipping on the ice when they run from
> the burning fuse and possibly go up in smoke with the resulting blast.
> They light the 40-second fuse and throw the dynamite.
> Remember a couple of paragraphs back when I mentioned the vehicle, 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 at a high rate of doggy speed on the
> ice and captures the stick of dynamite with the burning 40-second fuse
> about the time it hits the ice. The two men yell, scream, wave their
> arms and wonder what to do now. The dog, cheered on, keeps coming. One
> of the guys grabs the shotgun and shoots the dog. The shotgun is loaded
> with #8 buckshot, hardly big enough to stop a Black Lab. The dog stops
> for a moment, slightly confused, but continues on.
> Another shot and this time the dog, still standing, becomes really
> confused and of course terrified, thinking these two geniuses have gone
> insane. The dog takes off to find cover, under the brand new Navigator
> truck. The men continue to yell as they run. The exhaust pipe under the
> truck is still hot, so the dog yelps and drops the dynamite under the
> truck, and takes off after his master. Then --BOOM-- the truck is blown
> to bits and sinks to the bottom of the lake in a very large hole,
> leaving the two idiots standing there with this "I can't believe this
> happened" look on their faces.
> The insurance company says that sinking a vehicle in a lake by illegal
> use of explosives is NOT COVERED. He still had yet to make even the
> first of those $560.00 a month payments!!!
> And you thought your day was not going well....
