Too odd! This reminds me of a joke...

A guy was driving down a lonely country road when something blazed by his passenger side door and kicked up a lot of dust.

He tried to downshift and keep up with it to determine what it was, but this thing was so much faster than his sports car that he couldn't keep up.

He saw whatever it was make a right turn into a farmer's land and up his drive to the back of his property.

He drove up and the farmer greeted him. "Howdy, can I do something for you?"

"Yeah" says the guy. "What on earth was that thing that flew by me on the road? I couldn't catch up with it to see what it was, but it went right behind your barn."

"Oh, that's just one of our three-legged hens" said the farmer. He then went on to say "The state university students bred these three-legged chickens so families with more than two kids could give each kid a chicken leg at dinner. They asked me to raise a few and I agreed."

The driver asked, "So do they taste as good as a two-legged chicken?"

The farmer replied, "Couldn't say. We can't catch 'em."

Why is the tow hook still on the bumper? maybe the shipping guys took it for a joy ride.

Ouch!

Well at least it hit right in the middle of the windshield. Can you imagine what would have happened had it hit the driver? OUCH!

I am thinking the tow hook is in because they had to tow the car after this incident. I wouldn't drive it with all that pheasant blood and guts splattered all over the inside of the car, that's for sure!

By the way, I have a tow hook questiion... I'm about to make a long road trip and my old boxster does not have a tow hook in the "tool kit" (I put that in quotes because half the tools in it don't look like what came with the car!) Should I buy one just in case I have trouble on the road, or will a tow truck be able to do the job without it?
