Funny Pun – Number Nine
Slinging Bull and his Family
Long ago when America was young
Many Indians lived on the prairie.
A famous Chief named Slinging Bull
Had three young wives he did marry.
Note: Indians didn’t live ON the prairie,
That just would not make sense.
Of buffalo patties they were wary,
So they lived in teepees and tents.
Wife Number One was so fair,
He called her his woman of the night.
She gave Slinging Bull his first heir –
A strapping son with eyes so bright.
I know what you are thinking
But it was just a joke, you know.
His beautiful young wife
Came from the tribe of Nava-ho.
The chief was so proud of his son,
He built a new teepee for his squaw.
Fashioned from the soft hide of a deer,
His braves were jealous and in awe.
Then Wife Number Two,
Gave him another son.
He built her a brand new teepee
Of hide from a moose killed with his gun.
Slinging Bull was virile and active,
Soon Wife Number Three was with child.
She also gave birth but in secret.
The Chief built her teepee in the wild.
From Africa he imported a fancy hide,
It was a strong hippopotamus skin.
The teepee stood in the forest,
No one knew the sex of the baby within.
The chief challenged his tribe
To guess the sex of the new baby.
Finally one young brave said,
“I think I have the answer, maybe.”
“Your Wife Number Three
Had not one but two twin sons.”
The Chief said,You are correct, I confess,
But tell me, how did you guess?”
:Elementary,” said the young brave,
“The squaw of the hippopotamus is equal to
The sons of the squaws of the other two hides.”
Pythagoreas may be rolling over in his grave.
Note: If you have forgotten the Pythagorean theorem which you encountered long ago in school: "the square of the hypotenuse (of a right triangle) is equal to the sum of the squares of the two (adjacent) sides."
World’s worst ‘teepee’ joke:
Patient: ‘Doc, I don't know what to do. I can't get to sleep at night. I keep having these recurring dreams. First I dream I am a teepee, then I dream I am a wigwam – all night long. What’s wrong with me?’
Psychiatrist: ‘Relax. Stop worrying. You are just two tents.’
