  • Turtle Sweat Lodge

    I saw this joke on my journal site and thought I would share.

    When Lakota's finish a ceremony, it is tradition to say, "All my
    relations", or "Mitakuye Oyasin." They also say this to get in and
    out of the sweat lodge.

    One year ago for Christmas an old Lakota guy got a microwave from his kids. All winter, he never used it. When Spring came, he got an urge for turtle soup. But he did not want to go through all the trouble of killing it and cleaning it.

    One fine morning, he went out and caught a turtle and carried it

    "Turtle soup sounds awfully good." he said to himself. "But it is an awful lot of trouble to kill it and clean." As he eyes the microwave, he is struck by sudden inspiration. He grabbed the turtle and shoved it into the microwave. He set the timer for one hour and turned it on.

    Every 25 minutes he would open the door to check on the turtles
    progress. When at last it "dinged" he went to see if it was done. As he approached the microwave, he heard a scratching sound, when he opened the door, out came the turtle saying, "Mitakuye
    Oyasin!" "Mitakuye Oyasin!"
    When you turn your back on me, don't expect me to care what you think!!

    Funny turtle
    " We beseech and demand... that you accept the Church and the Superior Organization of the whole world and recognize the supreme Pontiff, called the Pope, and that in his name you acknowledge the King and Queen... his representatives, as the lords and superior authorities of these islands and main lands...
    If you do not do this, or resort maliciously to delay, we warn you that, with the aid of God, we will enter your land against you with force and will make war in every place and by every means we can and are able, and we will then subject you to the yoke and authority of the church and of their Highnesses.
    We will take you and your wives and children and make them slaves...
    And we will take your property and will do you all the harm and evil we can..."

    --The Requerimiento (read by Spanish Conquistadors to the people of the "New World" )
