Smile File The duck hunters The following is a story heard on a local radio station relating an incident involving two duck hunters and a black lab in Wisconson. A guy buys a new Lin- coln Navigator for $42,500 (with monthly payments of $860). He and a friend go duck hunting in upper Wisconsin. It's mid winter;, and of course all the lakes are frozen. These two guys go out on the ice with their guns, a dog, and, of course, the new Lincoln Navigator. They decide to make a natural looking open water area for the ducks to focus on, something for the decoys to float in. 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 from the BLACKFOOT VALLEY DISPATCH Lincoln, MT Feb. 26, 2009 -- 7 I Many of our readers submit jokes and stories from time to time they believe are humorous and deserving of being passed on. We welcome your submissions of tasteful humor or reflections aimed at the funny bone or heart of the human spirit. back of the 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) decide on the following course of action ... They light the fuse, then, with a mighty thrust throw the dynamite as far away as possible. The black lab, a highly trained retriever, takes off across the ice at a high rate of speed and grabs the stick of dynamite just as it hits the ice. The two men swallow, blink, start waving their arms and, with veins in their necks swell- ing, scream and holler at the dog to stop. One hunter pan- ics, grabs the shotgun, loaded with #8 bird shot -- hardly big enough to stop a 75 lb. lab -- and shoots the dog. GARY KASPER & COMPANY, INC.

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... Booooooom...I The truck is blown to bits and sinks to the bottom of the lake, leaving the two idiots standing there with "1 can't believe this just hap- pened" looks on their faces. The insurance company says that sinking a vehicle in a lake by illegal use of explosives is NOT COVERED bythe policy. And our duck hunter still had yet to make the first of those $860 a month payments. The dog is okay.., doing just fine. And you thought Rednecks only live in the South...
