    How much Wild Turkey should be consumed prior to the operation depicted in photo #2?
    Is it best to have the atv in low range 4wd and exert a slow steady pull, or put her in high, have a little slack in the line, and let er rip?
    And finally, how much should I charge for this operation?

    Actually, my uncle once removed a bad tooth by tying dental floss around it snugly, attaching the other end to two gallon jugs of water, then throwing the jugs off the balcony. I believe he mentioned a dosage of whiskey somewhere in there :stars:

    Hmm, sounds like how Tom Sawyer got his tooth removed in one of those books...

    I think this is one of those operations that require more whiskey and less for thought. Just make sure you have more whiskey for after the proceedure ;)
