Controversial joke Tory MP received on
[PoliticsWatch updated 6:15 p.m., January 25, 2007]
OTTAWA — Liberals
say it's racist.
Tory MP Colin Mayes says there is nothing in it that insults the
culture of any group of people.
PoliticsWatch has found on the Internet what appears to be
the joke that is the centre of controversy to allow our readers to
make their own judgement.
An Indian walks into Tim Horton's with a shotgun in one hand pulling a male buffalo with the other.
He says to the waiter, "Want coffee."
The waiter says, "Sure chief, coming right up."
He gets the Indian a tall mug of coffee.
He drinks the coffee down in one gulp, turns and blasts the buffalo with the shotgun, causing parts of the animal to splatter every where, then just walks out.
The next morning the Indian returns. He has his shotgun in one hand another male buffalo with the other.
He walks up to the counter and says to the waiter, "Want coffee."
The waiter says, "Whoa, Tonto! We're still cleaning up your mess from yesterday. What was all that about, anyway?"
The Indian smiles and proudly says, "Training for an upper management position in Canadian Government: Come in, drink coffee, shoot the bull, leave mess for others to clean up, and disappear for rest of day."
