Also to a boy.  The chief was very happy.  He built her a teepee made
of antelope hide.  The third wife gave birth a few days later, but
the chief kept the details a secret.  He built this one a two story
teepee, made out of a hippopotamus hide.
   The chief then challenged the tribe to guess what had occurred.
   Many tried, unsuccessfully. Finally, one young brave declared that
the third wife had given birth to twin boys.
   "Correct," said the chief.  "How did you figure it out?"
   The warrior answered, "It's elementary.  The value of the squaw of
the hippopotamus is equal to the sons of the squaws of the other two hides."

   A doctor made it his regular habit to stop off at a bar for a
hazelnut daiquiri on his way home.  The bartender knew of his habit,
and would always have the drink waiting at precisely 5:03 p.m.  One
afternoon, as the end of the work day approached, the bartender was
dismayed to find that he was out of hazlenut extract.  Thinking
quickly, he threw together a daiquiri made with hickory nuts and set
it on the bar.  The doctor came in at his regular time, took one sip
of the drink and exclaimed, "This isn't a hazelnut daiquiri!" "No,

   A guy goes to a psychiatrist.  "Doc, I keep having these
alternating recurring dreams.  First I'm a teepee; then I'm a wigwam;
then I'm a teepee; then I'm a wigwam.  It's driving me crazy.  What's

my wife made some asparagus and put some stuff on it that was
delicious...Hollandaise sauce.  I loved it so much I now put it on
everything --- meat, toast, fish, vegetables, everything."
   "Well," says the dentist, "that's the problem.  Hollandaise sauce
is made with lots of lemon juice, which is highly corrosive.  It's
eaten away your upper plate.  I'll make you a new plate, and this
time use chrome."
   "Why chrome?" asks the patient. To which the dentist replies,
"It's simple.  Everyone knows that there's no plate like chrome for
the Hollandaise!"
