Seamus and Jimmy, two Newfoundlanders, got a pilot to fly them in to Labrador to hunt moose. They had great luck, and managed to bag six. As they were loading up the plane to return, the pilot said the plane could take only four moose. The two lads objected strongly.
"Last year we shot six," said Seamus. "The pilot let us take them all, and he had the same plane as yours."
Reluctantly, the pilot gave in and all six moose were loaded. However, even on full power, the little plane couldn't handle the load and went down. Somehow, surrounded by the moose bodies, Seamus and Jimmy survived the crash.
After climbing out of the wreckage, Seamus asked Jimmy, "Any idea where we are?" Jimmy replied, "I think we're pretty close to where we crashed last year."
