That reminds me of my friend's little boy. We camp a lot in the summer time and we used to have two quads (an ATV). Our friends were driving out to our campsite to join us, so Mike and I thought it would be fun to ride out to the road to greet them and escort them into the campground on the quads. Great ride, lovely hot day in the mountains.
We escorted our friends to the head of the campsite road, which is where the MUDPUDDLE is. It's wider than a car, and our friend is very meticulous about keeping his black car shiny clean, so he carefully skirted the puddle. Mike thought it would be hilarious to splash the car and get it all dirty. Only, as he started to speed past the car through the puddle, the goo in the puddle grabbed the wheels of the quad and sent it off to the left up a bank, headed straight for a tree. Mike vaulted off the quad (I guess not wanting to split his head open upon impact with the tree) and flew backward through the air and *SPLASH* into the puddle on his derrierre.
Young Jesse (age 4) pipes up from the back seat of the car: "What the FUCK is he doing?!?!?" (It must have looked pretty wild from a 4 year old's point of view) Well, poor Mum and Dad - hard to scold someone when you're biting the insides of your cheeks so hard!
Oh, and BTW - the quad stopped about 2 inches before it hit the tree.
