A group of friends went deer hunting and decided to pair off in two's for the day. that evening one of the hunters returned alone, staggering under the weight of an eight-point buck. "Where's Ed?" the other hunters asked. Ed's hunting partner, brian, replied, "Ed must have had a heart attack. he just keeled over and died a couple of miles back up the trail." the other hunters gasped and one guy asked, "you left Ed laying out there and carried the deer back?" "it was a tough call," nodded brian. "but I figured that nobody would steal Ed."
