Two Tennessee rednecks are out hunting, and as they are walking along they come upon a huge hole in the ground. They approach it and are amazed by the size   of it. The first hunter says, "Wow, 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 and see how long it takes to hit bottom."

The  first hunter says, "There's this old automobile transmission here, give me a hand and we'll throw it in and see".  

So they pick it up and carry it  over, and count one, and two and three, and throw it in the hole.

They are  standing there listening and looking over the edge and they hear a rustling in the brush behind them.            

As they turn around they see a goat come crashing through the brush, run up to the hole and with no hesitation, jump in head  first.

While they are standing there looking at each other, looking in the hole and trying to figure out what  that was all about, 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 doin' about a hunert miles an hour and jumped head first into this hole here!"


The old  farmer said,   

 "That's impossible. I had him chained to a transmission!"
