    Ice, dynamite, Navigator and a dog!!

    This is probably disseminating fast thru the net but new to me today - so hope some may not have seen it yet.

    I have not bothered to ''Snopes'' it because I am not bothered really whether it's dead true or not - it's still funny!

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    A guy buys a new Lincoln Navigator for $42,500.00 (with monthly payments of
    $560.00).

    He and a friend go duck hunting in upper Wisconsin. It's mid-winter; and of
    course all of the lakes are frozen. These two guys go out on the ice with
    their GUNS, a DOG, and of course the new NAVIGATOR.

    They decide they want to make a natural looking open water area for the
    ducks to focus on, 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 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 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 cover, UNDER the brand new Navigator.

    The men continue to scream as they run. The red hot exhaust pipe on the
    truck touches the dog's rear end, he yelps, drops the dynamite under the
    truck and takes off after his master.


    Then " "" "" "" "" " BOOOOOOOOOOOOM "" "" "" "" "" ! ! ! !

    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.

    The dog is okay. . .doing fine.

    And you thought Rednecks only lived in the South.......

    As I said - I didn't ''snopes'' it - because I thought it a funny yarn regardless
