El Vaquero and Chilito

El Vaquero and Chilito are camping in the desert.

He sets up their tent and both are soon asleep.

Some hours later, El Vaquero wakes his faithful friend, "Chilito, look up at the sky and tell me what you see."

Chilito replies, "I see millions of stars, señor."

"What does that tell you?" asks El Vaquero.

Chilito ponders for a minute. "Astronomically speaking, it tells me there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets. Astrologically, it tells me that Saturn is in Leo.

Chronologically, it appears to be approximately quarter past three. Theologically, its evident the Lord is all-powerful, and we are small and insignificant. Meteorologically, it seems we will have a beautiful day tomorrow. What does it tell you, señor?"

El Vaquero is silent for a moment, and then says, "Chilito, you big dummy, someone has stolen our tent."
