View Full Version : Two Hunters, A Dog, And A Brand New Truck

My Brother-in-law sent me this. I thought you would enjoy it:


Two hunters from Michigan -- (true story) This is
from a radio program, a true report of an incident in
Michigan:

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
Lincoln Navigator.

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 on 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 the first of those $560.00 a
month payments!!!



And you thought your day was not going well??

I figured as much as everything he sends me is on there. You'd think I'd learn by now huh? It's funny anyway. Eddie~
