Head-Smashed-In — a historical point of interest in Alberta, Canada — is one place where the Blackfoot indians killed buffalo by herding them over a cliff. Which, if you’re a hungry guy facing a buffalo with a sharp stick, honestly seems like a pretty good idea. Seeing as how no part of the buffalo is wasted, as I like to say.
You should read more about this here.
Anyway, I found out about this place from my Dave Barry daily calendar. He reports that when he called them on the phone, the person answered with, “Hello, Head-Smashed-In,” and that he found this to be “the highlight” of his life.
It probably was not as funny in the original Blackfoot.
