Vodka and guns: your classic mix…

March 8, 2007

You remember the posting yesterday showing a wolf hunter blowing into his gun? It didn’t look like the safest thing in the world, and it brought to mind that wise saying, “Friends don’t let friends suck on a gun barrel.”

Well, it gets better. The hunt is over now, and what nicer way to celebrate than with a picnic on the hood of your car, complete with ample supplies of vodka? We’ve got our guns and our booze and our car – a perfect combo.

“Hey George! Don’t hog that vodka! Pass me another tumbler, and now it’s my turn to stand in front of the gun!”

Why don’t they hunt down hired killers who use radioactive poisons, instead of reducing the numbers of already endangered species? What is “sporting” about that???

Didn’t get enough good wolf pelts this season. I guess it’s back on the welfare lines for poor Jorgie.
