    Maybe it's a cultural thing (I'm in the UK) but I'm not sure what the Native American aspect adds here? The joke looks like it works just as well without it to me



    A guy walks into a cafe with a shotgun in one hand and pulling a male buffalo with the other. He says to the waiter:
    “Coffee.”
    The waiter says, “Sure thing. Coming right up.”
    He gets the guy a tall mug of coffee.
    The guy drinks the coffee down in one gulp, turns and blasts the buffalo with the shotgun, causing parts of the animal to splatter everywhere and then just walks out.

    The next morning the guy returns.
    He has his shotgun in one hand, pulling another male buffalo with the other.
    He walks up to the counter and says to the waiter:
    “Coffee.”
    The waiter says, “Whoa dude! We're still cleaning up your mess from yesterday. What was all that about, anyway?”
    The guy smiles and proudly says,
    “Training for a position in United States Senate. Come in, drink coffee, shoot the bull, leave mess for others to clean up, disappear for rest of day.”

    Buffalo normally associated with Native Americans, they were their food & clothing source.

    As said, politically incorrect, but it does remind me of a few people over there.

    I imagine that it's playing on a stereotype of native Americans being unsophisticated and not understanding the subtleties of the "job description" - an equivalent would perhaps be blonde jokes, or Irish jokes for you and I in the UK?

    You could make the coffee drinker a redneck, a hillbilly, someone from Nuneaton (the people in my locality who tend to get tarred with the stupid brush) or whoever, although as you say, given how ineffective most politicians in most countries seem to be at the moment, there's no need for any kind of qualifier on the coffee drinker, it's just satire!

    *Edit* having seen the previous post, it may well be that I've overthought this somewhat, but you could replace the buffalo with any kind of cow (or indeed an elephant, whale, antelope, seal or whatever) and the joke would still work.

    Aaah, cheers Keith - I was missing that. I'm with Mattharrier though - politics has descended so far into satire I half expect to see the subject of this joke elected in real life shortly.

    It only works with a male animal of a species that's referred to as a bull to allow the "shoot the bull" misinterpretation.

    A hamburger and a hotdog go into a bar and order drinks. The bartender says, "sorry we don't serve food here".

    Limiting it to the US Senate is a little restrictive, I think.

    The so called joke is typical of the American ethos.

    If it is not related to the USA then it is not relevant.

    Now an internationally crafted joke with political overtones that is applicable to all would have a much wider impact.

    Remember this is a Global forum and hence not one restricted to the USA where many of you may live, while many more of us love our own Countries and we have zero desire to ever live in the USA.

    Keep strumming.
