An Australian travel writer touring Canada was checking out of the
Vancouver Hilton, and as he paid his bill said to the manager, "By the
way, what's with the Indian chief sitting in the lobby? He's been there
ever since I arrived."

"Oh that's 'Big Chief Forget-me Not'," said the manager. "The hotel is
built on an Indian reservation, and part of the agreement is to allow
the chief free use of the premises for the rest of his life. He is
known as 'Big Chief Forget-me Not' because of his phenomenal memory. He
is 92 and can remember the slightest details of his life."

The travel writer took this in, and as he was waiting for his cab
decided to put the chief's memory to the test.

"G'dye, myte!" said the Aussie, receiving only a slight nod in return.
"What did you have for breakfast on your 21st birthday?"

"Eggs," was the chief's instant reply, without even looking up, and
indeed the Aussie was impressed.

He went off on his travel writing itinerary, right across to the east
coast and back, telling others of Big Chief Forget-Me-Not's great
memory. (One local noted to him that 'How' was a more appropriate
greeting for an Indian chief than 'G'dye myte.'

On his return to the Vancouver Hilton six months later, he was surprised
to see 'Big Chief Forget-me Not' still sitting in the lobby, fully
occupied with whittling away on a stick.

"How," said the Aussie.

"Scrambled," said the Chief.
