Three American Indian children were sitting around with their father when the youngest said:

— Father, how did you come up with our names?

— Well, the father says: when each of my children was born, I named them after the first thing I saw outside. For example, after your older brother was born, I looked outside and saw an eagle flying in the sky, so I named him Soaring Eagle. When your sister was born, I looked outside and I saw a fawn scampering away, so I named your sister Running Deer. So why do you ask Black Dog Shitting?
