    Hilarious. I like that he gave the guy 6 sticks of dynamite before he bothered to ask him what he needed it for, too.

    A few years ago, I lived in my travel trailer for an extended period of time. The trailer had a 40 gallon sewage tank that I would fill and periodically empty into the sewer via a 3" line. After about two years, the point where the pipe connected to the tank plugged up. After several calls, I found a plumber that would come out and snake a sewer line on an RV. Now, imagine the situation.... Running a sewer snake up a pipe going to a tank with 40 gallons of raw sewage that you know when the snake hits the blockage, that the tank load is going to come out of that pipe at full speed and you get to hold the bucket at the business end of the pipe. Well, the guy hit the blockage and it started to pour. Stink to the heavens and beyond, it did but I had a lot of fun watching him try to grab a bucket while yanking that snake out of there and trying to close the valve.

    Best laugh I have had in a while, sides still hurting.

    I used to live in the coal mining area of southeastern Kentucky, back in the 1950s and 1960s the general store sold everything from diapers to dynamite. We used it for everything from blowing stumps and boulders, altering the course of a stream and onetime to even make a pond. Do remember a neighbor that had been trying to dig out an old willow stump, after about three or four days digging he got mad and put 5 or 6 sticks under it. He said after he lit the fuse and it blew the last he saw of the stump it was going over the ridgeline. Another old boy decided to try fishing with dynamite, he asked around and was told to use a stick of dynamite, well he got a bit confused or forgetful and used 4 sticks instead, made the best swimming hole in the county.

    @noway2. As a long time RVer I got a bigger kick out of your story than the video. I couldn't even talk for a while I was laughing so hard.

    There is NOTHING IN THE WORLD funnier than a well-told tale, by a masterful, Southern gentleman, who never once let the truth...stand in the way of a good story. Thanks so much.

    Thanks. That is why i enjoy going into town and having breakfast with the old farts club (there is a chapter in every town). You never know what you may hear.
    I don't always have nothing to say, but when I do, I post it on Facebook.

    That was amazing, and it could have gone so many different ways once you heard him talking about 6 sticks in the trunk of his car. Good stuff!
