That reminds me of a story my wife told me about some relatives of hers --
not real close relatives.  They got their truck stuck in the mud.  Luckily,
they had a winch on the front of it.  They hooked the cable to their bumper
and winched away, and pulled the bumper off.

They weren't really southerners, they were from Maryland.
