ABSOLUTELY TRUE STORY (well, maybe not) HEARD ON A WISCONSIN RADIO STATION REPORTING ON THE INCIDENT
A guy buys a new
Lincoln Navigator for $42,500.00 (with monthly payments
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
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.

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
under the brand new Navigator.
The men continue
to scream as they run.
The red hot exhaust pipe on the
Navigator touches the dogs rear end, he yelps, drops the
dynamite under the Navigator and takes off after his
Then BOOOOOOOOOOOOM !!!!
The Navigator is blown to bits and sinks to the bottom
of the lake, leaving the two idiots standing there
