Best stories? I have two; I was the victim in both cases. When I was about 12 year of age we had a neighbor who came by one day with a large cage that contained an "Australian Mongoose". The cage had two sections; One section had a wood frame covered with heavy gauge screen, and the other was completely enclosed and made of plywood. We couldn't see the entire animal but the tail was visible as the mongoose slept in the enclosed section. Deep scratches, at least 1/4" deep, were visible all over the wood cage. Chicken bones were seen broken and splintered and lying all over the cage. He said that he fed it whole chickens. This thing was so fast and so dangerous that if it were to get out we might all be mauled within seconds. It kills so many people each year in Australia...and on and on until, just when he had us convinced this was the most dangerous animal known to man, the top of the cage flew open and the thing came right at me and hit me in the chest. We were standing in the garage at the time. I was literally on top of the washing machine and heading for the rafters before I realized that nothing was attacking me. The phony fox tail was lying on the floor. The spring loaded trap door of the cage had a hook attached that threw the tail when a secret latch was released. My dad told me later that he really thought I was dead. I really did as well. When I first started in the mobile Cat Scan Business, I was given the business. A couple of techs came running over with an X-Ray of a penis that had a broken bone inside. They were both quite excited and swearing that this poor guy had become so sexually "involved" that he actually broke his penis bone! I'm saying things like, but...I didn't think...now wait...there's a bone! OMG!!! Before the scam was over there were two techs, a nurse, and a radiologist all telling me that this was genuine broken penis bone - very rare indeed. I couldn't believe my eyes! An old X-Ray trick: Take some PlayDoe, shape it like a penis, overlay a broken chicken bone, carefully place in position and shoot. No depth perception to worry about. I love this stuff; as long as it isn't mean and it doesn't go too far. Unlike Tsu who swore for years that what I saw as orange she saw as red. But that's another story.
