Jeff and Walter are taking a hike in the woods one day and they come across a huge, deep hole in the middle of a clearing. Jeff says “Whoa…look at this hole, I can’t see the bottom! And being men, Walter say’s, “Yeah, lets throw in a rock and see how deep it is. They search around and find a baseball sized rock and toss it in the hole…and wait…and wait…nothing! “Hey!” said Jeff, “I didn’t hear it hit bottom! Walter shakes his head and says…”Yeah, let’s find a bigger rock…maybe it just wasn’t big enough!” So, they roam around a bit more and find a football-sized rock. Jeff tosses it over the edge, and they wait…and wait...Not a sound. They look at each other in amazement and Walter says “OK, that one we should have heard! Let’s see if we can find something really big.” So they scope out the underbrush nearby, and Walter stumbles over the end of a railroad tie buried in the bushes. “Hey Jeff,” he yells. “Here’s something that should do it. Come over here and help me move this thing.” They drag the railroad tie over to the edge of the hole, and with a huge shove, they slide it over the edge. They wait…and wait…and all of a sudden they hear a noise behind them and turn around to see a goat charging straight at them. They jump apart with a yell, and that stupid goat jumps right between them and straight down the hole! They look and each other with eyes popping out, and Walt says “Do you believe that? Why did he do that?” Jeff just shook his had and said “I don’t know man.” Just then a farmer comes strolling into the clearing and says “Hey guys…you didn’t see a goat around here did you?” Walter says, “Yeah, you won’t believe it, he it just jumped right down in this big hole?” The farmer looks over the edge and shakes his head and says “Naw, that’s wasn't my goat, mine was tied to a railroad tie!”
