Earl and Larry Were Out Hunting One Day
They are tracking an elk and after a while, Larry, looks up and says, "Earl, do you know where we are?"
"No idea," said Earl, " but I know what to do. If we shoot into the air three times, someone will hear it and come save us. "
With nothing to lose, they shot into the air three times and waited. After several hours, and nobody coming to rescue them, they tried a second time, again to no avail.
It was getting dark, and Earl suggested they try it one last time.
"OK Earl," Larry sighed, " but if this doesn't work, I'm afraid we're on our own. I'm down to my last three arrows."
