"Bearly Tolerable"

By Piney Woods - SASS #29887-L

 

Scenario
You've moseyed away from the campfire to admire the sunrise over the next ridge. Bein' the practical feller that you are, you did take your rifle with you... just in case. You're hunkered down on a rock, takin' in the mornin', when you spot a big ol' bear on the ridge across the valley, just within rifle range. Bein' a con-a-sewer of bear meat, you decide to take 'im down.

You fire shot after shot, and that ol' bruin just doesn't fall over! After you've emptied your rifle, without any visible results, you take a closer look and realize that some joker has painted a likeness of a bear on a big old log. Feelin' like a regular yahoo, you spot a woodchuck. Thinkin' woodchuck stew might make up for no bear, you blaze away at 'im with your sixgun.
