Native Humor: 8 Points of Wisdom from Doctor Coyote

Dr. Coyote

The coyote is complex and devious, hence the title 'Trickster.' Some tribes call him Nanapush, some Inktomi, some see the deceiver as tarantula, others say Pihneefich or Saygap.

This aid, the coyote is a very powerful teacher. According to ICTMN's Dr. Coyote, "Think of him as a Native Bart Simpson, you can learn how do things the right way from doing the opposite of what he does."

This said ICTMN readers, be wary, Dr. Coyote usually speaks out of all sides of his mouth, with his forked tongue,  or all at once.

Here are 8 points of humurous wisdom from our own Dr. Coyote:

8. Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow. Do not walk beside me either. Just pretty much leave me alone.

7. The journey of a thousand miles on the red road begins with a broken fan belt and a leaky tire.

6. It’s always darkest before dawn, so if you're going to steal your neighbor's newspaper, that's the time to do it.

5. Don't be irreplaceable. If you can't be replaced, you can't be promoted.

4. Always remember that you're unique, just like everyone else.

3. Natives laugh so much to keep from crying.

2. Never test the depth of the water with both feet.

1. If you think nobody cares if you're alive, try missing a couple of car payments.
