Custer Had It Coming (humor)

Everyone knows the famous Homeland Security t-shirt -- it's a picture of Geronimo and three other Natives with the tagline "Fighting terrorism since 1492" -- but it's just one of many sly shirts that we've spotted on in-the-know Natives. In a way, wearing your tribal heritage -- and the legacy of injustice toward your people -- on your sleeve keeps history alive in our increasingly ahistorical age. There is irreverence here, and even jokes -- but the humor packs the punch of truth.

Two young Native boys were bragging about how fast their Fathers  are. One stands tall and boasts, "My Dad is so fast that He can  shoot a deer with an arrow and get to it before it drops to the ground!

The second boy says, "Wow that is fast", then says "Well my Dad works for the BIA and he's so fast that he gets off  work at five and he's home at four thirty!"
