A film crew was on location deep in the desert. One day an old Indian went up to the director and said,
— Tomorrow rain.
The next day it rained. A week later, the Indian went up to the director and said,
— Tomorrow storm.
The next day there was a hailstorm.
— This Indian is incredible,
said the director. He told his secretary to hire the Indian to predict the weather for the remaining of the shoot. However, after several successful predictions, the old Indian didn’t show up for two weeks.
Finally the director sent for him.
— I have to shoot a big scene tomorrow, and I’m depending on you. What will the weather be like?
The Indian shrugged his shoulders.
— Don’t know, he said. My radio is broken.
