    How many Chevy trucks can you roll off of sand dunes all hopped up on firewater in 90 years?

    I wonder how many people know about the Navajo code talkers because of the X-Files. That's where I first heard about it.

    I used to get this AM station loud and clear on cold winter nights. They speak navajo half the time. They will be grunting and moaning thru a live read, then say Burger King or Dodge Trucks. I would not be able to crack the code either.

    First and only time. I hated that guy. Give him free whiskey for life and let him drink himself to death in his shitty trailer.

    He was murdered by an ex-Japanese soldier that lived in the same nursing home he did. It took a few decades, but mission accomplished.

    Wrong. They were roommates, he needed his heart pills and the Jap had no idea what the fuck he was asking for.

    Wrong. The Jap was an ex-fisherman who had a flashback and hallucinated that dude was a giant squid coming to do him in. Jap killed dude with a fishing net and a rowing oar.

    Wrong. Jap was sick of suffering with advanced glaucoma and decided to throw himself a little seppuku party. But, due to the aforementioned glaucoma, he mistook the Navajo belly for the Japanese belly and hilarity ensued.

    Wrong. Jap has Alzheimer's and thought that he was James Bond and that Navajo was Alec Trevelyan. The evening ended with Navajo plummeting to his neck-snapping death from the top of the radar couch. Police have determined that Jap did for Jap; not for England.
