(Note, Siwash is a derogatory term for Native Americans in the Pacific Northwest, and as such, the name "Siwash" will be replaced in this story with "duck.")

Right.

*Ctrl-F "Siwash"* 10 results.

... Right.

That's 3 times after they say they're replacing it, plus two times in the tags.

Farkers are so damn predictable. I came in here to say this exact same thing.

Also, I've never heard the word "Siwash" in my life, and I went to school in a small racist town near a Reservation so I heard pretty much every Native America slur you can think of.
