It seems there was this Indian chief who became tired of his wife of many years, and decided to get himself a couple of new trophy wives. (He was the chief, after all). His old wife was not very happy with the new additions to the household, but could do little about it. Presently both of the new wives became pregnant, and, somewhat surprisedly, so did the old wife. When her time was due, one of the young wives lay down on a buffalo hide and brought forth a fine healthy son, bringing her husband great joy. A few days later, the second young wife lay down on a moose hide, and she too bore a healthy baby boy. But the old wife was not to be outdone. Only a week later, she lay down upon a hippopotamus hide and delivered twin sons, fine and healthy! "So, what does this prove?" you ask. It proves, one again, that the squaw of the hippopotamus is equal to the sons of the squaws of the other two hides.
