 The curator of a Western art museum commissioned a local artist to
 paint a mural-sized painting of Custer's Last Thought.  The artist was
 told to make it highly symbolic of Custer's mindset during the debacle
 the Little Big Horn.

 Deep in  thought, the artist went to his studio.  After many false
 starts, he proceeded to paint an enormous oil painting.  Finally,
 after many months of work, the painting was unveiled for the curator.

 In the foreground,  a beautiful crystalline blue lake with a single
 fish leaping.  Around the fish's head is a halo.  In the background,
 the hills and meadows are covered with naked Native American couples

 The curator is both disgusted and baffled by what he sees.  In a
 rage he turns to the artist and asks, "What the hell has this got to
 do with Custer's Last Thought?"

 The artist replied,  "It's simple; Custer's last thought had to have
 been: "Holy mackerel!  Where did all these fucking Indians come from?
