Coyote Clings to a Pickup Truck
So the other day while standing in line at Wal-Mart I overheard an older lady telling the cashier, who didn't really appear to pay much attention to the woman, that she saw a man driving a pickup truck down the interstate... with a dog hanging on to the tailgate for dear life.
I thought to myself, "Oh boy. Another weirdo at Wal-Mart."
The woman continued on with her story despite the cashier's total lack of response. She said, "If that man hadn't been driving that pickup so fast in the other direction she'd have turned around and have tried to stop him. And save that poor, poor animal. It's a shame what people do these days."
And with those words, the old woman gathered her three bags and walked off.
Probably just a crazy old woman looking for some conversation, right? Ha! Not hardly!
A few weeks later my neighbor Jim stops me by the mailbox and tells me he saw the darn funniest thing he's ever seen in his life so I ask him what he saw.
Jim takes out his phone and shows me this:

Apparently Jim waited for the owner of the vehicle to come out of the store, 'cuz retired people have time to wait around for stuff like that, and talked to the owner of the truck, a local taxidermist with a great sense of humor.
And it's not a dog, it's a coyote.
