Me and my buddy Pete, were out hunting, and as we were walking down by my south 40 fence line we came upon a huge hole in the ground.
We approach it and are amazed by the size of it. I says "Wow, that's some hole; I can't even see the bottom. I wonder how deep it is."
Pete says" I don't know, let's throw something down and listen and see how long it takes to hit bottom."
I says "There's this old automobile transmission here, give me a hand and we'll throw it in and see".
So we pick it up and carry it over, and count one, and two and
three, and throw it in the hole. We are standing there listening and looking over the edge and we hear a rustling in the brush behind us.
As we turn around we see a goat come crashing through the brush, With his head down in full charge mode run up to the hole and with no hesitation, jumped in head first.
While we are standing there looking at each other, looking in the hole and trying to figure out what that was all about, my neighbor walks up.
"Say there", says the farmer, "you fellers didn't happen to see my goat around here anywhere, did you?"
Pete says," Funny you should ask, but we were just
standing here a minute ago and a goat came running out of the bushes doin' about a hunert miles an hour and jumped headfirst into this here hole!"
The old farmer said "Why that's impossible, I had him chained to an old transmission!"
