This is an allegedly true story...
An English home owner was at his wits' end in his long and unsuccessful war against the mole that had been burrowing unsightly tunnels throughout his property. Having had enough of the traps and poisons, he planned to go hand to hand with the mole.
Moles are nocturnal animals, so he drove his Jaguar onto the lawn to hunt the mole down with the aid of its headlights. The car stalled, and when he got it started again, it lurched into gear and out of control. Onward it rolled, the driver trapped inside, until it crashed into his house. The car's fuel tank ruptured and burst into flames, which quickly reached the house and burned it to the ground.
He couldn't even phone for help, as the telephone cable was burned through before he call the fire department. "I was lucky to get out alive," he said, "but I still want to see that mole dead!"
