The Lone Ranger and Tonto in the Desert


The Lone Ranger and Tonto were camping in the desert, had set up their tent, and were fast asleep.


The Lone ranger woke up and said to his faithful friend "Tonto, look up at the sky and tell me what you see."


Tonto replied, "Me see millions of stars."


"What does that tell you?" asked The Lone Ranger.


Tonto pondered for a minute.


"Astronomically speaking, it tells me that there are millions of

galaxies and potentially billions of planets," he said, and paused.


"Astrologically, it tells me that Saturn is in Leo; time wise, it

appears to be approximately a quarter past three," Tonto continued.


"Theologically, it's evident that God is all powerful and we are

small and insignificant in the whole of things," he suggested.


"Meteorologically, it seems we will have a beautiful day tomorrow,"

Tonto concluded. 


What it tell you, Kemo Sabi?" Tonto asked politely.


The Lone Ranger was silent for a moment, then spoke:

"Well, Tonto, I was pointing out that someone has stolen our tent!"
