The Chief Speaks

This is what happens when you tell your funniest joke, and the gulls don't get it.

+ + + + + + + +

(I have asked our ailing Raggedy for a health update. Will transmit it here, if and when. Hang in there.)

+ + + + + + + +

The old Chief sat in his hut on the reservation, smoking the ceremonial pipe, and eyeing the U.S. government officials sent to interview him.

"Chief Two Eagles," one official began. "You have observed the white man for 90 years. You have observed his wars and his material wealth. You have seen his progress and the damage he has done."

The Chief nodded, reflecting that this was so.

The official continued, "Considering all these events, in your opinion, where did the white man go wrong?"

The Chief stared at the officials for over a minute, and then calmly replied, "When white man found the land, Indians were running it. There were no taxes, no debt, plenty buffalo, plenty beaver, women did all the work,. medicine man came free, Indian man spent all day hunting and fishing, and all night made love to his woman."

Then the Chief leaned back and smiled. "White man dumb enough to think he could improve a system like that."

Support bacteria. It's the only culture some people have.

an cowboy and his Indian friend went on a vacation.they stopped in a town to spend the night.
the Indian had never been i n a town to all things were new to him.
in the night the cowboy got sick and asked the Indian friend to go get him some the Indian went to get it.and came back and gave it to the cowboy.
soon the cowboy was thirsty again.and asked the Indian to get more water.
this time it took a very long time for the Indian to return to the room.
the cowboy said what the heck took you so dang long?
the Indian said "white man sittom on well.....
moral of the story "not all water is sweet water.."
