~Golden Storytime~(Universal Asian Family)

..."During the 1950's grandfather Goldenmeier refused to leave the Artic Bay. Our family fearful he would take his life, took away all of his tools and implements, thinking that would force him onto the new settlement. But, instead he just slipped out of the igloo on a cold Artic night, pulled down his caribou and sealskin trousers, and defecated into his hand. As the feces began to freeze, he shaped it into the form of an implement. And when the blade started to take shape, he put a spray of urine along the edge to sharpen it. Thats when what we call the " shit knife" took form. He used it to butcher a Polar Bear. Skinned the Polar Bear with it. Improvised a sled with the bear's rib cage, and then, using the skin, he harnessed up an adjacent living bear. He put the shit knife in his belt and dissappered into the night

Another Story, Another Time...
