    Embarassing moment

    A friend and his wife were on a trip to go scuba diving. The night before, he ate huge quantities of shrimp.

    After the dive, they and some friends were packed into a Camaro
    for the drive home. In the back seat, my friend began to get a bad case of gas from the shrimp he had eaten the night before. He held on bravely for what seemed like an eternity, for the sake of the other passengers. It seemed as though he was expanding like a balloon, ready to bust. Finally, he decided he could take no more and was about to tell the driver to pull over, or even find a restroom (you know how these things can turn unexpectedly nasty.) Suddenly, a dog darts in front of their car and they slam on the brakes. Too late for the dog (and my friend,) as the dog is crushed under the wheels and killed instantly (while my friend simultaneously releases his burden.)

    The carnage and the smell were unbearable. My friend was very embarrassed, but the horrible death of that poor animal seemed to completely override any concerns anyone had about my friend's accidental expenditure. Everyone was so distraught about the dog, they seemed not to notice.

    As people started to come to grips with what had happened and
    calm down a bit, one girl began spilling her emotions about how the dog had met such a gruesome fate.

    "You could hear the bones crunching," she wept. "The blood and guts were unbelievable." Everyone agreed.

    "But the worst thing of all, worse than the blood, guts and bones crunching...the most horrible thing was the smell of death!

    No worries

    Sounds terrible! One thing that strikes me is how people when experiencing such a tragic accident, where such a "nice" animal meets a tragic destiny, later at evening goes home and eat a steak (other animal). But at least it shows us our growing empaty, twohundred years ago no one would have cared. We are going the right direction

    Not to sound unsympathetic, but that is the funniest story I've read in a while. I was getting strange looks from my secretary!

    <Flame Provoker #1> Did they charge the driver of the car for the senseless death of a dog, like some on this board are out to charge any driver for anything? </FP#1>

    <FP #2> People have slaughtered animals for eons. Why suddenly would we stop eating meat if, for some reason, we'd be in a position to regularly do this again? Why are there incisors in human mouths anyway? For tearing lettuce apart? </FP #2>

    LBM, funny story. But I am very concerned about the errant animal on my bike rides. When my family went on vacation in Utah to see Zion Nat'l Park, we added to the litter of deer carcasses strewn aside the road. A deer shot out of nowhere and scared the sh*t out of us all. My girls were really upset. (Not sure if anybody farted though.) Earlier that day I had ridden my bike and I was simply scared to death one of those "giant antlered rats" would jump out and nail me broadside.
