A COUPLE of hunters are out in the woods when one of them falls to the ground. He doesn’t seem to be breathing, and his eyes are rolled back in his head. The other man whips out his phone and calls 000. “I think my friend is dead! What can I do?” he gasps.

The operator replies: “All right, take it easy, I can help. First, let’s make sure he’s dead.”

There is silence, and then a gunshot is heard.

Finally the hunter comes back on the line. “Okay.

Now what?”
