Only in America..........

Two hunters from Wisconsin -- (true story)

This is from a radio program, a true report of an incident in

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, (and the new
Navigator truck), are standing.

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
They light the 40 second fuse and throw the dynamite. Remember a couple
of sentences back when I mentioned the vehicle, the guns, and the dog?

Let's talk about the dog: A highly trained Black Lab used for
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!

...IF you forward it to 10 people Microsoft will mail you a check for $50! Captain Bumblyfudge of the S.B.C.A.F. confirms that this is the REAL DEAL. "I got my check within 3 days" stated the Captain. Furthermore, if you can forward it to 10 people within 24 hours Microsoft will DOUBLE your check to $100! And it's tax free as it falls under the Herashow Valdez Act of 1964 that gives it tax exempt status.

Urban Legend Linda...
