Ching! Ching! Friends!

Red Neck 911 call: A couple of redneck hunters are out in the woods when one of them falls on the ground. He doesn't seem to be breathing and his eyes are rolled back in his head!
The other redneck starts to panic then whips out his cell phone and calls 911! He frantically blurts to the operator, "Oh my Gawd! Help! My friend just died. He's dead. What can I do?"
The operator, trying to calm him says, " Take it easy, I can help. Just listen to me and follow my instructions. First lets make sure he's dead.!"
There's a short pause then the operator hears a loud gun shot!! Then the redneck comes back on the line and says "OK, what now?"

Ever feel like that? I do.. often. Friendship is a fleeting thing. Precious when you have it. Sad and lonely when you don't. Here's to Mike's and my friends on this New Years Eve. Ching. Ching.
