Hey Dave, dead men???

Since I asked that question about winch anchors and you responded that using a dead man works best, I've been scouring the newspapers. Oh, I know you said an old axleshaft would work, but since I (like every jeeper) search for individuality, I think your idea regarding the use of a deadman would be great. Get stuck, and instead of pulling out a pull pal or other winching device, pull out a dead man and drive him into the ground. I figure a good chain around the neck ought to give me some good pulling. And once rigor-mortis sets in, driving the stiff into the ground should be easy. But here's the question...can I use a dead woman instead? All the men around here who die are fat, and I think they'd be hard to drive into the ground. Moreover, they'd take up a lot of room in the new trailer. I think a dead woman would be more convenient...whaddya think? [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img][img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img][img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Trying to come up with a witty line to end all of my posts...

[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img] It isn't true what they say about all that corn in the Corn Belt. It isn't the CORN that gets all the farmers so fat....it's that goofing off ten months out of the year. They go through the fields one time with these mega-planters that can plant through anything....junk cars if the guy has THEM out in the field.....and then they side-dress with ammonia before the corn is too high, and then THAT's IT....till they get in the combine and get the grain out. Once they get finished with that(about two weeks)they poop around in the shop all winter, while we out here on the Jest Coast are putting in winter califlower and following that with tomatoes and then a fall crop to boot. We can't get no rest.....we're ALL skinny out here.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

I never believe any statistics unless my moonguys [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img][img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img] made 'em up themselves.
