Unfetchable Dynamite

Avoid Loaded Dogs

The last thing a hunter, demolitionist, or fisherman wants when throwing a lit stick of dynamite is to have it come back. In fact, a leading cause of death among dynamite sportsmen is unexpected dynamite fetching by a companion canine.

See Link Below:

The Unfetchable Dynamite helps to prevent these senseless tragedies.

Unfetchable Dynamite's fuse is treated to emit an irritating "tear" gas as it burns, deterring the erstwhile fetcher from approaching.

The wrapper is treated with a chemical so that it tastes absolutely repugnant to dogs. Pepper essence and lemon juice would make the dynamite unpleasant to carry.

Overall, the risk of a fetch-related dynamite accident is greatly reduced with this product.

       There was a Redneck Trailer Supply in Springfield, Missouri.   

       So you want to prevent a dog and a dog-owner getting blown up? Tell me why again.

       Just put a warning label on the dynamite ("Leash dog before throwing").
DrCurry, Jul 29 2005
  

       The "leash dog before throwing." was left out for legal reasons. Unfortunately, too many customers lit the dynamite and then paused to catch the dog, find the leash, and apply to collar. Boom.

       Warning: Not recommended for hunting Graboids (as seen in “Tremors”).

       If the dynamite were wrapped in double-sticky carpet tape, it would prevent the stick from being thrown in the first place. It would also allow the dynamite to be easily affixed onto the thing to be blown up.

       Dynamite... sportsman. Oxymoron, surely?

       Rats, I guess my idea for an aerodynamic, flattened, V-shaped stick of dynamite will have to be delayed for further review.

       I'm a little down that the SUV at the bottom of the lake is an urban legend. I heard something about it being in Canada & having won the lotto & Ice fishing, hey?

       So, uh, what exactly do you try to kill in this sport, and why do you want it in forty pieces?
