: "LET THE DEVIL TAKE ITS HINDMOST'.
Two guys are camping in Yelowstone Park when a grizzly bear wanders into view. One of the campers starts to lace-up his running shoes. His friend says, "you can't out-run a griz." The other responds, "I don't have to out-run the griz. I just need to out-run YOU".
