Tonto was the Lone Ranger's scout, he even rode a horse named Scout. As a scout, Tonto used to ride into town ahead of the Ranger to gather information for him. He invariably got beat-up and sent packing while the Ranger sat around the campfire roasting hot dogs and marshmallows.
The Lone Ranger and Tonto walked into a bar and sat down to drink a beer. After a few minutes, a big tall cowboy walked
in and said "Who owns the big white horse outside?" The Lone Ranger stood up, hitched his gunbelt, and said, "I do... Why?"
The cowboy looked at the Lone Ranger and said, "I just thought you'd like to know that your horse is about dead outside!"
The Lone Ranger and Tonto rushed outside and sure enough Silver was ready to die from heat exhaustion.
The Lone Ranger got the horse water and soon Silver was starting to feel a little better. The Lone Ranger turned to Tonto and said, "Tonto, I want you to run around Silver and see if you can create enough of a breeze to make him start to feel better."
Tonto said, "Sure, Kemosabe" and took off running circles around Silver.
Not able to do anything else but wait, the Lone Ranger returned to the bar to finish his drink.
A few minutes later, another cowboy struts into the bar and asks, "Who owns that big white horse outside?"
The Lone Ranger stands again, and claims, "I do, what's wrong with him this time?"
The cowboy looks him in the eye and says, "Nothing, but you left your Injun runnin'."

And that's EXACTLY what happened to me when I was a qa Scout...laid off after putting in coutless hours of unpaid OT whlie the VPs did things like covering a jaguar sedan with 14,000 post-it notes. Yes, at one time, those were my fearless leaders [img]/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]
I would post a link to the images on flickr but I refuse to add to their view count and provide additional free advertising dollars :|
