Well,up there in Podunk Township in Podunk County Tennessee,it is considered good luck to find a horse shoe,if you find one you are supposed to hang it on your wall so that it forms a "U" this is so that good luck will be caught in the "U" and wont fall out.It seems that one day Uncle Fossill found no less than 4 horse shoes and was really anticipating lots of good luck in 2012,unfortunately,the owner of the horse that the 4 horse shoes were attached to did not feel that it was a good luck sign for Uncle Fossill to come into his stable and take the shoes,( with the horse still attached to them) and sent the county sheriff out to arrest Uncle Fossill,how ever after Uncle Fossill explained to the sheriff that it was all a mistake,and after both the sheriff and Uncle Fossill had a few sips of Uncle Fossill's "special" brew,the sheriff was in a much better mood,he returned the horse to the owner(minus 1 shoe of course) and Uncle Fossill celebrated the fact that indeed good luck had been in his corner as he did not get hanged for horse thievery,the owner got his horse back and the sheriff had a good drink of some of Uncle Fossill's brew.
Alls well that ends well up there in Podunk County Tennessee.
