Silly story...

Sent by a friend in Australia:

Two mates are out hunting and they come upon a huge hole in the ground. They approach cautiously, and are amazed by the size of it.

The first Aussie says " Wow Mate, that's some hole, I can't even see the bottom, I wonder how deep it is?"

The second hunter says" I don't know, let's throw something down and listen to hear how long it takes to hit bottom."

The first hunter says " Hey, here's an old auto transmission, give me a hand and we'll throw it in and see".

With great effort they pick it up and carry it over. They count one, and two and three, and throw it in the hole. As they are standing there listening and looking over the edge they hear a rustling in the brush behind them. They turn around and see a goat come crashing through the brush, run up to the hole, and jump in headfirst.

They are stunned. They stand there looking at each other, looking in the hole, and trying to figure out what that was all about, when an old farmer walks up. "Say there", says the farmer, "you fellers didn't happen to see my goat around here anywhere, did you?"

The first hunter says " Funny you should ask, but we were just standing here a minute ago and a goat came running out of the bushes and jumped headfirst into this hole here!"

The old farmer, scratching his head says, " Why that's near impossible, I had him chained to a really heavy car transmission."
