  1. “There is always something to fear for those who are afraid.” G. B. Shaw

    The 911 dispatcher received a call: The guy says, “My buddy & I are hunting, & he just accidentally shot himself! What should I do?” The dispatcher calmly says to him, “Well, first you need to make sure he’s really dead…” The guy says, “Okay” & puts down the phone. The operator hears what sounds like a gunshot, then the guy comes back, & says, “Okay, I’m sure he’s dead. What now?”
