Two city slickers are driving home during a blinding winter storm and run out of gas in the middle of a forest. One says he thought there was a house over a hill, so they set off in the snow to try to reach it. Along the way, they stumble across some tracks and quickly get into an argument about whether they are deer tracks or rabbit tracks. Both are very loud, obnoxious types, thinking they know it all and they are very competitive, so they go on arguing rather loudly for quite a while, ratcheting up the volume as they start screaming at each other. So involved in their spat, they were, that they were both run over by the 2:00 A.M. freight train.
