A Sindhi went to a dentist for tooth extraction but first enquired about the cost. Dentist said Rs 1200, the Sindhi thought that was too much.

After some thought, he asked about cheaper methods. The dentist said, "Yes, it can be done without anesthesia and will cost only Rs 300, but it would be very very painful."

Sindhi said, "OK Doc, let's do it without anesthesia."

The dentist removed the tooth without anesthesia. During the entire procedure, the Sindhi sat quietly, even smiling a little.

The dentist was not only surprised but was quite impressed and said, "I have never seen such a brave patient. I don't even want my fees, here take Rs 500 as a reward instead, you've taught me such a powerful lesson today about mastering one's pain!!!"
In the evening he met his fellow dentists and told everyone about this amazing Sindhi patient. One doctor jumped up and shouted, "That ×%#@ Sindhi first came to me, I gave him anesthesia and asked him to wait outside for half an hour! After half an hour when I called for him, he had left!!
A politician gives a stump speech in an Indian reservation, trying to garner the Native American ballot.

"If elected, I promise better education for Native Americans," he says.

The crowd goes wild, calling out: "Hoya! Hoya!"

Guy doesn't know what the word means, but he figures, hey, they look excited, so he goes on.

"I promise to propose legislation permitting a casino to be built on this reservation," he says.

The crowd gets even more frenzied, and keeps shouting "Hoya!" over and over.

Encouraged by the cheers, he finishes his speech, "And if elected, I promise to ensure better health care and employment options for Native Americans!"

The crowd is at a fever pitch, stamping their feet and yelling "Hoya! Hoya! Hoya!"

His speech finished, the guy shakes some hands, kisses some babies, and decides to go on a tour of the reservation before hitting the campaign trail again.

Guy comes across a huge herd of cattle, and says to his guide, "I was raised on a ranch, and I've always loved cattle. Mind if I go over and get a closer look?"

"Sure," says the guide, "but be careful not to step in the hoya."
