They're a world apart...Penguins live in Antartica and Eskimos live in Artica.

Tricking yourself with a trick question. That's pretty funny.

BTW, it's the same reason why polar bears don't eat penguins and eat eskimos instead...

No trick about it, more like in a scale of 1 -10

I didn’t even know that one about the polar bears.

Polar bears will eat Texans - if the Texans are visiting eskimos.

Could it have something to do with people carrying guns in Texas.

Just a lucky guess…

They've been told to cut down on fat-headed foods.

The more politically correct term for "Eskimo" is "Inuit", btw

They don't hunt kangaroos or elephants for the same reason.

Only in Canada. It's not universally accepted by Eskimos themselves because it refers to only one of the two main Eskimo groups (who, even then, don't always accept the term Inuit). The other group, the Yupik, are mostly in Alaska and Russia. IIRC, the term Eskimo is in general use among Alaskan Eskimos. There are also Eskimos who consider themselves neither (Inuit nor Yupik).

What's the more politically correct term for "fat-headed Texans"?

Ken,

All of the ones that occur to me as correct would violate the "no politics" rule.

One might get around that by suggesting that the phrase itself is redundant. If one wanted a fight with every Texan in the group.

Thomas,

You forgot the Aleut. (At least. There are a number of tribes which might fit, based on different criteria.)

IIRC, these are mostly tribes belonging to the Athabascan language group, and members of these tribes often associate themselves with family units, rather than more generalized labels.
