A guy buys a brand new
Lincoln Navigator truck for $42,500 (with monthly payments of
He and a friend go duck hunting in mid-winter; and of course all of
the lakes are frozen. These two guys go out on a lake with their
GUNS, a DOG, and of course the new NAVIGATOR.
They drive the Naviga! tor out onto the frozen lake and get ready to
place the decoys. 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 the
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 birdshot, 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,
thinking 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 ot exhaust pipe on the truck touches the
dogs rear end, he yelps, drops the dynamite under the truck and
takes off after his master.
Then """"""" BOOOOOOOOOOM
"""""""!!!! 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.
