True story out a Wisconsin news paper

A guy buys a
>Lincoln Navigator auto for $42,500.00
>(with monthly payments of $560.00). He and a friend
>go duck hunting in mid-winter 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 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 dogs 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...
