Barbara Walters was doing a documentary on the customs of American Indians. After touring their reservation, she was curious about the number of feathers in the headdresses.
She approached one brave, who only had one feather in his headdress, and asked, "Why is there a difference in the number of feathers in the headdresses?"
"One feather, one squaw," he replied.
