This email forward is not actually funny, but it is kind of funny that it wound up in Sarah Palin's inbox.

The state of Alaska released over 24,000 emails from Palin's government account on Friday, after numerous news organizations requested them years ago. This is the oddest one we've seen so far.

A guy named John Reinhard forwarded this emai, about an "Indian with one testicle," to Palin on Sep. 10, 2008 -- just 12 days after John McCain named her as the Republican Party's vice presidential nominee. She does not appear to have forwarded it on to anyone else, possibly because she was busy.

Via the LA Times database of Palin's emails:

Did not see that coming. I was convinced Yellow Bird would turn out to be a succubus. Or Blue Bird's zombie. Guess not.
