Two Kentucky rednecks are out hunting, and as they are walking along they came upon a huge hole in the ground.
They approach it and are amazed at the size of it. Billy Joe Bob says, “Wow, that’s some hole; I can’t even see the bottom. I wonder how deep it is?”
Lester replies, “I don’t know. Let’s throw somethin’ down there, listen and see how long it takes to hit bottom.”
Billy Joe Bob says, “Hey, there’s an old automobile transmission over there. Gimme a hand, we’ll throw it in and see.”
So they pick up the rusted tranny and carry it over and count “one, two, three” and heave it in the hole.
They stay standing next to the sinkhole listening and looking over the edge, when they hear a rustling behind them. As they turn around, they see a goat come crashing through the underbrush, run up to the hole and, without hesitation, jump in headfirst.
While they are standing there staring at each other in amazement, peering into the hole and trying to figure out what that was all about, an old farmer saunters up.
“Say there,” says the farmer, “You fellers didn’t happen to see my goat around here anywheres, did ya ?”
Billy Joe Bob says, “Funny you should ask, but we were just standing here a minute ago and a goat came running out of the bushes doin’ bout a hunnert miles an hour and jumped . . . headfirst into this here hole!!”
The old farmer said, “Naw, that’s impossible . . . I had him chained to a transmission!!!”
