I am 1/64 Native American. I don't know why my native brethrens and sistrens get so upset about the whole horribly offensive representation of Native Americans.

I mean, he's just your average, big-nosed, triangle-eyed, dumb-grinning fire-water slurper with the scorching skin tones of his ancestor's bloodied feet. Does Mr. Wahoo look authentically Indian?

Of course he does! Look at Jim Thorpe!

And did you know Kyle Lohse is a descendent of the Nomlaki Wintun tribe? OF COURSE YOU DID. Just look at him!

Whoa! I'm starting to get confused! Which was Mr. Wahoo again? They all look the same!

Oh, that's right, Mr. Wahoo is the one with the horribly exaggerated nose, blood-red skin, and triangle eyes.

But we injuns sure do like to grin!
