Insert your favourite politician

The politician was invited to address a large gathering of the First Nations. He assured them that he was working as hard as he could to address more First Nations concerns. He spoke for almost an hour on his future plans for increasing the native standard of living, if he could only win the next election.

At the conclusion of his speech, the head chief presented the politician with a plaque inscribed with his new native name: Walking Eagle. The proud politician then departed along with his motorcade, waving to the crowds.

A news reporter later asked the chiefs how they came to select the name given to the politician.

They explained that "Walking Eagle" is the name given to a bird so full of crap that it can no longer fly.
