    (2 February 2008, New York) A 50-year-old man was bird hunting in Upstate New York with his buddies and his faithful canine companion. They stopped for a smoke, and his dog found a deer leg bone!
    The man tried to take the bone away, but like any right thinking dog, the animal would not relinquish its treasure. He stayed just out of reach. Frustrated with this blatant show of disobedience, the man grabbed his loaded shotgun by the muzzle and began wielding it like a club. Each time he swung it, the dog dodged.

    Suddenly the "club" struck the ground and fired, shooting the man in the abdomen. He was airlifted to a nearby hospital, where he died from his injuries. He did remain conscious long enough to confirm this account to police; otherwise, his poor friends might now be under suspicion!

    At least he didn't hit the dog.

    I know! I would have felt a little bad for him if he was doing something innocent like trying to squash a bug with it... but hitting a dog with an 8lb rifle because he found a bone? Im glad it happened...

    Wow! But I still think the guy who jumped out of plane without a rig should have won.

  7. tsk tsk tsk. :roll:
     
  8. This is cold, but I wonder if he had a surprised look on his face when the shotgun went off.
     
  9. Beats me. But, I bet the dog was laughing his arse off!

    Well, that's one less vote for McCain, I guess.
     
  11. The way the world works, it probably startled the dog and it dropped the deer leg :shock:
