Deep Thoughts

The Lone Ranger and Tonto went camping in the desert. After they got their tent all set up, both men fell sound asleep.

Some hours later, Tonto wakes the Lone Ranger and says, "Kemo Sabe, look towards sky, what you see?"

The Lone Ranger replies, "I see millions of stars."

"What that tell you?" asked Tonto.

The Lone Ranger ponders for a minute then says, "Astronomically speaking, it tells me there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets. Astrologically, it tells me that Saturn is in Leo. Time wise, it appears to be approximately a quarter past three in the morning. Theologically, it's evident the Lord is all-powerful and we are small and insignificant.
Meteorologically, it seems we will have a beautiful day tomorrow. What's it tell you, Tonto?"

Tonto is silent for a moment, then he says, "Kemo Sabe, you dumber than buffalo dung. Someone has stolen tent."

I must confess that I fell for it. It seemed perfectly natural that they should be looking at the stars. (I guess I figured they had one of them newfangled tents with the see-through inner flaps.)

Another one, in case you haven't already heard it:

The Lone Ranger and Tonto are riding through the desert when the Lone Ranger's horse stumbled and fell from heat fatigue.
After picking himself up and righting Silver, the Lone Ranger tells Tonto that they need to walk the horses to the next town so as to not overheat them again.
Upon arriving at the next town, the approach the local 'watering hole' and the Lone Ranger decides he'll go ahead inside and cool himself down.
Now since injuns weren't allowed in the bar, Tonto has to stay outside, so the Lone Range suggests he run circles around Silver to fan him, to help cool him down. Tonto proceeds to run circles and Lone Ranger goes in for a cold beer.
After a spell, a stranger walks in the bar and asks the Lone Ranger if that's his white horse outside.
"Yes, it is." he replies.
The stranger says to him "Well, you left your injun running."
