THIS IS AN ABSOLUTELY TRUE STORY THAT WAS HEARD ON A WISCONSIN RADIO STATION WHICH WAS REPORTING ON THE INCIDENT:
A guy buys a brand new Lincoln Navigator truck for $42,500 and has monthly payments $560.00. He and a friend go duck hunting in mid winter, and of course all the lakes are frozen. These two guys go out on the lake with their GUNS, a DOG, and of course the new NAVIGATOR. They drive the Navigator out onto the frozen lake and get ready to place the decoys. 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. Our two Rocket Scientists, afraid they might slip trying to run away quickly after lighting the fuse and become toast, along with the Navigator, light the 40 second fuse, and with a mighty thrust 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 at a high rate of doggy speed on the ice and captures 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 birdshot, 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 dogs rear end, he yelps, drops the dynamite under the truck and takes off after his master.

Then """""""BOOOOOOOOOOM """""""!!!!

The truck is blown to bits and sinks to the bottom of the lake leaving the two idiots standing there with a "I can't believe this just happened" look on their faces. The insurance company says that sinking a vehicle in a lake by illegal use of explosives is NOT COVERED. He still had yet to make the first of those $560.00 a month payments!!!

And you thought you were having a bad day!
