Three Indian women are sitting side by side.  The first, sitting on a
goatskin, has a son who weighs 170 pounds.  The second, sitting on a
deerskin, has a son who weighs 130 pounds.  The third, seated on a
hippopotamus hide, weighs 300 pounds.  What famous theorum does this illustrate?

Naturally, the answer is that the squaw on the hippopotamus is equal to the
sons of the squaws on the other two hides.
