He tells the story of how he bought his wife a pistol so she wouldn't be afraid to use the outhouse at night because of wolves and bears. And he loves a laugh, suggesting a reporter urinate on an electric fence to see if it was powered up. Does that really electrocute? his visitor asked. "What do you think?" Schweitzer said with a big laugh.
