Points To Ponder…

– – It’s  deer hunting season again in Pennsylvania.  A  thought on the subject:

“Whether hunting is right or wrong, a spiritual experience, or an outlet for the killer instinct, one thing it is not is a sport.  Sport is when individuals or teams compete against each other under equal circumstances to determine who is better at a given game or endeavor.  Hunting will be a sport when deer, bears, elk, and ducks are endowed with human intelligence and given 12-gauge shotguns.  Bet we’d see a lot fewer drunk yahoos (live ones, anyway) in the woods if that happened.” — R. Lerner

‘scuse me…I gotta go help even the odds out there a bit…

    Mr. Lerner is oh-so right. In fact, his wording strongly reminds me of a “Ding” Darling cartoon that was reprinted in a 1963 World Book encyclopedia article about him.

    It showed an anthropomorphic mallard (with body cast and crutches) reading the dictionary definition of “sportsman.” Whereupon, the duck exclaims: “Either this dictionary is wrong, or there are a lot of people around here calling themselves by the wrong name!”

    “Hunting is not a sport. In a sport, both sides should know they’re in the game.” — Paul Rodriguez

    “The fascination of shooting as a sport depends almost wholly on whether you are at the right or wrong end of the gun.” — P.G. Wodehouse

    “My Uncle Clem was a farmer. And, one day, his wife nags him for not buying groceries like she told him to, earlier. She says: ‘You lazy bum! If you want supper tonight, you better go out and hunt some game.’ So, he puts on his red flannel hat and coat, grabs his shotgun, and goes off into the woods. An hour later, he comes acrosss this BEAUTIFUL naked blonde woman, sitting on a rock! And, he says to her: ‘Are you game?’ And, she replies: I sure am, handsome.’ So, he shot her!” —Gabe Kaplan
