Re: Any hunters here?

  The Duck Hunters:
  This from a radio program, a TRUE report of a happening in Michigan:
  A guy buys a brand new Jeep Grand Cherokee for $30,000 and has $400+
  monthly payments. He and a friend go duck hunting and of course all the
  lakes are frozen. These two guys go to the lake with the guns, the dog,
  the beer 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 Grand Cherokee comes a
  stick of dynamite with a short, 40-second fuse. Now these two Rocket
  Scientists do take into consideration that they should place the
  dynamite at a location far from where they are standing (and the new
  Grand Cherokee). Mainly 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 decide to light this
  40-second fuse and throw the dynamite. (Remember a couple of paragraphs
  back when I mentioned the vehicle, the beer, the guns and the dog?) Yes,
  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 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 duck shot, hardly big enough to stop a Black Lab. The dog stops for a
  moment, slightly confused, but continues coming. Another shot and this
  time the dog, still standing, becomes really confused and of course
  terrified, thinking these two Nobel Prize winners have gone insane. The
  dog takes off to find cover, (with the now really short fuse burning on
  the stick of dynamite) and gets under the brand new Cherokee. ---- BOOM!
  Dog and Cherokee are blown to bits and sink 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. AND...He still had to make those $400+ a month payments!
