The Smart Lone Ranger

The Lone Ranger and Tonto are riding their horses late one afternoon and they realize they’re not going to make it home before dark. So they find a suitable spot and make camp for the night. They pitch their tents, start a fire, and commence cooking their supper.

As soon as they eat the meal and have cleaned up, they sit around the fire telling stories and singing songs. Soon, the sun has set and it gets dark. So they crawl into their sleeping bags and go to sleep.

Sometime in the middle of the night, Tonto wakes the Lone Ranger up. “Kemo Sabe, look at sky, what you see?” he asks. The Lone Ranger replies, “I see a bunch of stars, why?”

“Tonto asks, “What that tell you?”

The Lone Ranger pauses and thinks. After a few minutes, he says, “Well, theologically it tells me that God is powerful and great, and we’re just small and insignificant. Astronomically, it tells me there are billions of stars out there, millions of galaxies, and thousands of planets, some of which might have life on them. Meteorologically, it tells me we’re going to have a beautiful day tomorrow. Astrologically, it tell me that Mars is in the constellation of Leo. Chronologically, it tells me it’s about 2:30 in the morning. Why, Tonto? What does it tell you?”

Tonto replies, “Kemo Sabe, you dumber than buffalo chips. Someone stole tent.”
