Tonto was the sidekick of the Lone Ranger in the old westerns.
The Lone Ranger and Tonto are walking in a meadow when Tonto gets off of his horse, leans down and puts his head to the ground. When he comes back up he says, "Whoa....many buffalo come." and the Lone Ranger asks, "How do you know?" Tonto replies, "Ear soaking wet."
