Duck Hunters From Wisconsin
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 mid-winter; and of course all of the
lakes are frozen.
These two guys go on a lake with their GUNS, a DOG, and of course the
They decide they want to make a natural looking water area for the ducks,
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 dogs rear end, he yelps, drops the dynamite under the
truck and takes off after his master.
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. He
still has yet to make the first of those $560.00 a month payments...The dog
