You can take the girl out of the country, but
you can never take the country out of the girl.

Grizzly Jake was a hunter without equal.
His mission in life was killing bears. Each hunting season was just another bear shooting sequel.
He kept his freezer full of bear steak cuisine.
Jake was even featured, once, in a national hunting magazine.
Well, at the last hunting trip that he went on,
the gun got jammed and Jake was gone.
They found his vest and one insulated boot
beside a gun that wouldn't shoot.
There are two very important lessons to be learned from this misadventure, as far as I can tell.
I'm sure Jake learned both lessons very well.
First: Enjoyment of hunting really depends on your point of view.
That is, whether you be the hunter, or, the hunter be hunting you.
Second: Enjoyment of a nice dinner all depends on your perspective.
That is, whether you be the chooser of dinner from the menu, or, you be the dinner menu elective.

  1. Ha ha! How true! I'd rather be the hunter than the hunted, let me tell you! But your story makes me want to opt for vegetarianism - I have never heard of a "lettuce attack!"

  3. Beware Audrey in some veggie tales there be a head of iceberg who might decide to make you its dinner wrap, with a dollop of teriyaki or sweet chili sauce...
