Why did Tonto call the Lone Ranger “kemosabi”?

Tonto is Spanish for ‘stupid’ or ‘fool.’ And Tonto, who was not so tonto, responded by calling the Lone Ranger ‘qui no sabe’ (with an Indian accent), which roughly translates from Spanish as ‘he who knows nothing’ or ‘clueless.’ Wed May 14 01:11:13 CDT 2003 I forgot to add the source for my reply which also has the reference to chicken droppings.
