& what better way to celebrate the start of 2004 than with some useful information?
Long, long ago, on an island far, far away, there lived a great Indian chief. He was so great, his people decided he could have more than one wife. This guy was so great, even his wives were okay with it!
So he had a tent made out of lion's skin for his first wife. Next door (flap?) to his first wife, he had a tent of hippopotamus' skin for his second wife. He put his third wife next to his second wife, in a beautiful tent of leopard skin. & there lived his 3 wives happily, all in a row.
They all had babies about the same time. The 1st wife had a bouncing baby boy; the 2nd wife had twins, one boy & one girl. The third wife had a darling little baby girl.
The conclusion we can draw from this is that the squaw of a hippopotamus is equal to the sum of the squaws of the two adjacent hides.
HA HA HA! GET IT?!?
