  1. "ABSOLUTELY TRUE" STORY HEARD ON A
    WISCONSIN RADIO STATION REPORTING ON
    THE INCIDENT.

    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 midwinter; 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 New NAVIGATOR.

    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 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 the 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, thinking 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.

    He still had yet to make the first of those $560.00 a
    month payments...The dog is okay...

    AND SOME FOLKS MAKE FUN OF PEOPLE IN THE SOUTH!!

    Read similar story in the darwin awards book where people are given this award for dying inthe most stupid ways. Some like the above story were given an honourable mention for coming so close. You can read more if you look up the Darwin awards on the net its worth the read.
