"Three Women in Mexico ...
Three women go down to Mexico one night to celebrate college
graduation, get drunk, and wake up in jail, only to find that they are
to be executed in the morning, though none of them can remember what
they did the night before.
The first one, a Lakota woman, is strapped in the electric chair and
is asked if she has any last words. She says, "I just graduated from
Oglala Lakota College and believe in the almighty power of Wakan Tanka
to intervene on the behalf of the innocent." They throw the switch
and nothing happens. They all immediately fall to the floor on their
knees, beg for forgiveness, and release her.
The second one, a Cherokee woman, is strapped in and gives her last
words. "I just graduated from the Haskell Indian Nations University
and I believe in the power of justice to intervene on the part of the
innocent." They throw the switch and
again, nothing happens. Again
they all immediately fall to their knees, beg for forgiveness and
The last one, a Potawatomi, is strapped in and says, "Well, I'm from Potawatomi
College and just graduated with a degree in Electrical Engineering,
and I'll tell you right now, you ain't gonna electrocute nobody if you
don't plug this thing in."
