Two cowboys came upon an Indian lying on his stomach with his ear to the ground.
One of the cowboys stopped and remarked to the other, “You see that Indian?”
“Yeah,” said the other cowboy.
“He’s listening to the ground,” said the first cowboy. “He can hear things for miles in any direction.”
Just then the Indian looked up. “Covered wagon,” he grunted, “about two miles away. Have two horses, one brown, one white. Man, woman, child, household effects in wagon.”
“Incredible!” the cowboy said to his friend. “This Indian knows how far away they are, how many horses, what color they are, who is in the wagon, and what is in the wagon. Amazing!”
The Indian looked up and groaned, “Actually, they ran over me about 15 minutes ago.”
