Re: Deer Whistles -- and Such
Kinda reminds me of Clarence R. He had something hanging on his office wall. It was a piece of half-inch smooth metal rod about three feet long. Had four short rods about three inches long welded to one end in the form of arrow barbs set 90 degrees apart, rather like a reef anchor if anyone --- well, never mind. About three feet of light chain was attached to the other end, with a four-inch metal ring attached to the other end of the chain. It was painted bright red. Just hanging there. After seeing it numerous times and not asking because I knew Clarence, I couldn't resist any more, and asked. Clarence got the biggest possum-eatin grin on his face I've ever seen, and drawled out, "Why, Bernard, that's a deer cincher." He waited. I knew I was had but I couldn't stop. "What's a deer chincher, Clarence?" "Well, you carry one a them when you go in the woods and you don't have your gun. If you run up on a deer, you shove it up his ass and drop that there ring over a fence post, and it's a cinch you can kill the deer when you come back with your gun."
A few days later I found some deer cinchers in the old timey hardware store right next to the deer whistles.
