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 from the new Navigator
truck), and they don't want to take
the risk of slipping on the ice when
they run from the lit dynamite fuse
and possibly go up in smoke with the
resulting blast. They light the
40-second fuse and throw the dynamite
as far away as they can.
couple of sentences back when I
mentioned the vehicle, the guns, and
about the dog: it's a highly trained
Labrador used for RETRIEVING.
Especially well trained at retrieving
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
birdshot, hardly big enough to stop a
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
continue to yell as they run away. The
exhaust pipe on the truck is still
hot, so the dog yelps and 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 in a very
large hole, leaving the two idiots
standing there with this "I can't
believe this happened" look on their
company says that sinking a vehicle in
a lake by illegal use of explosives is
NOT COVERED. He still had yet to make
the first of those $560.00 a month
thought your day was not going well.
