There once was an Indian who had only one testicle, and whose given name was 'Onestone'. He hated that name and asked everyone not to call him Onestone.

 

After years and years of torment, Onestone finally cracked and said,

'If anyone calls me Onestone again I will kill them!'

 

The word got around and nobody called him that any more. Then one day a young woman named Blue Bird forgot and said, 'Good morning, Onestone.'

 

He jumped up, grabbed her and took her deep into the forest where he made love to her all day and all night.

 

He made love to her all the next day, until Blue Bird died from exhaustion.

 

The word got around that Onestone meant what he promised he would do.

 

Years went by and no one dared call him by his given name until a woman named Yellow Bird returned to the village after being away.

 

Yellow Bird, who was Blue Bird's cousin, was overjoyed when she saw Onestone.

 

She hugged him and said, 'Good to see you, Onestone.'

 

Onestone grabbed her, took her deep into the forest, then he made love to her all day, made love to her all night, made love to her all the next day, made love to her all the next night, but Yellow Bird wouldn't die!

 

What is the moral of this story?????

 

 

 

OH, Come on...take a guess!

 

 

 

Think about it............

 

 

 

(You're going to love this!)

 

 

 

Very simply, the moral is..................

 

 

 

YOU CAN'T KILL TWO BIRDS WITH ONE STONE!!!!

 

 

Don't blame me,

I just send 'em on.

>Did you read the joke? Do you think there are people in

>India named Yellow Bird? :+

:-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-)

 

Maybe PurpleKow is just easing the tension of your erudite query!

 

Touche...

 

Both of you have points--- both valid posts! . Unfortunately, the labels given to people still permeates our society...jokes are less criticized in many occasions and situations because of the narrator's intent-- to make a joke sometimes at the expense of political correctness! I remember when people were called differently by other groups and no one seemed to care or raise an eyebrow-- the times...they are a changing! and I am glad they are.

 

Just be patient, things will flow into place. we have come a long way from the riots of New York! :) Purple was just dissipating, to my belief your point so as to avoid any detour of the posters intent (which oftentimes happen in a board like this!)

 

Just found out how yellow bird translates in Russian! желтая птица (just a silly attempt to make you laugh!)

 

 

 

With much understanding on your points!

No, since there is no such thing as a "Native American" which is just a politically correct term that signifies nothing.

 

Think about it. To be a "native" you would have to be indigenous. North America has no "indigenous" people. We all came from somewhere else.

 

So "American Indian" should be the correct term but "Native American" -- which wouldn't even make sense because there was no "America" when they came here -- was invented to make a minority group feel happy.

 

A true "Native American" would be someone who was in this country in 1776.

 

Facts are difficult things.

Since I live on "Indian land," I feel compelled to point out that while "Native American" may be politically correct in New York City, my lease terms are still set by the federal Bureau of Indian Affairs (whose local office is on Indian Canyon Avenue), the term used in the legal documents to refer to the owners is still Indian, and everyone I know here, including the local tribespeople, refer to the indigenous people here as Indians when they don't use the proper tribal name. (I have never seen any reference to the local recreational area, owned and managed by the Cahuilla tribe, as the Native American Canyons.)

That's why I posed it as a question, Charlie! Thanks for the info (although I don't get the NYC reference...is there a huge population of Native Americans in NYC or do most scholars reside in this city?).

 

To back you up, I found this from nativeamericans.com:

 

While most scholars prefer to use Native American most of the time, sometimes the term "Indian" is more appropriate. Native Americans sometimes use the term "Indian" or "American Indian" to describe themselves. We often use terms like "Indian schools" or "Indian officials" for two reasons: one, because that is the language people at the time used, both Native Americans and whites, and two, these things are also often proper names or titles, as in the case of "Holy Childhood Indian School" or the "Bureau of Indian Affairs."

I thought this was a story about a native of India living in a "hippie" commune as Yellow Bird and Blue Bird could certainly be the names of ladies living in such a place. But then again such a violent act as murder would likely lead one to be expelled by a group generally represented as peaceloving. I apologize if the term hippie is offensive to some as I am not sure this term was ever embraced by the community it was used to describe by the more traditional elements of American society.

I was not trying to defuse or incite, merely pointing out that there are different sensibilities and interpretations. In this case and probably in many, one may see offense, another does not.

 

Is there a descendant of one of the many tribal peoples who inhabited North American before its colonization by people of European descent or a descendant of subcontinental Asia who would care to comment? Or perhaps an old hippie.

This is crazy - Rick can't you just let a post go without inserting some demeaning question or comment. Just because you pose something as a question or because you include smiley faces doesn't mean your post isn't mean or intended to demean the poster.

 

let it rest.

 

 

funny story.

I'm not sure what you're talking about. What was demeaning? Did I call joseph a racist or personally attack him in some way? I seriously wanted to know if the term "Indian" was appropriate, and thanks to Charlie, I now know that it was. As for my reply to joseph just above yours, I thought he was kidding when he said he was never going to post again.

I am confused about all this Indian issue. x(

 

Are you guys referring to a Tech Indian or a Casino Indian? At one time they were referred to as Dot or Feather Indians but the terms have been updated for the times. Please clarify; are we talking about Tech/Dot or Casino/Feather? ;-)

I wasn't offended. I was asking a serious question. Gay men mostly prefer to be called gay and not "homosexual," Asians don't like the word "Oriental," black people usually do not like being called an n-word, and so on. I have always enjoyed this board the most when I can learn something and through my post and Charlie's response, I did learn something. "Indian" is not always offensive to Native Americans. Got it.

 

Also, joseph did not write that joke; it's been passed around the web a million times, and he even ended his post with "Don't blame me,

I just send 'em on," so I am not sure why he got offended at my question.

 

>Enjoy a joke.

 

Well, I didn't actually enjoy the joke, but it did made me think. I'm sorry if thinking is now considered a bad thing on this board! :-(

I can't believe that one harmless little joke could cause so much hoo-haw and elicit 20 replies.

 

It's just a joke guys. I'm so sick of so-called political correctness.

 

Isn't it about time we started a rucus over "Merry Christmas" vs. "Seasons Greetings"?

20 replies, but did you read any of them? Nobody, including me, was remotely offended by the joke. The only people who were offended were ariadne, rentingdad and you, who all took offense to my imagined, nonexistent offense-taking. And now I must take offense to your taking offense, because I am so sick of people who are so sick of so-called political correctness. Or something. :p

Yes Rick - I DID READ every one of them.

I think you should read my reply again. Don't say I was offended by the joke, because I was not and I never even implied that.

>of people who are so sick of so-called political correctness.

Whoopee - another cause to pursue :-)
