You mean native Alaskan's didn't migrate across the Bering Straits many moons ago? Were they there before the Polar Bears, seals and Sarah Palin?

Do you know what Eskimos have for Holiday dinners? Christmas seals! Bada boom. Did you hear of the Eskimo guy stabbed by an icicle? Killed by cold cuts. Bada boom. Know what you get if you sit on the floor of an igloo too long? Polaroids! Bada boom.

Thank you, thank you. I'll be here all week. Try the veal, tip the waitress.
