- Did you mean Apache (Web Server)? Get a life!
The Apache are one of many tribes of Native Americans who have a long history of having once lived where your local Wal-Mart is now constructed. Once considered 'primitive' by European settlers, Native Americans have a complex and sophisticated culture, as evidenced by Indian turquoise jewelry, weaving and textiles, folklore, songs, casino management and complex server-hosting algorithms.

Despite their historical acumen at managing servers, invoking spirit animals, and alternate names for corn, people native to India have taken this reputation and convinced companies to outsource their IT services. However, American Indians have grown tired of providing support for Windows and have moved into providing gaming services, especially targeted at making money off of rich IT pros from India.
The United States can thank the Indians for such easy-to-spell state names as Mississippi, Tennessee, and Utah. Also the territories that used the names, the sky, the ground, and all the other things that used to be theirs. The temporary reversion of power in 1886 prevented settlers from moving natives 'further west', which at this point would have been the Pacific ocean.
They also developed the first known jokes about 'pitching a tent'. Much of their accumulated knowledge was lost in the great fire of 1842, which historians concur was 'not so great'. Vocal histories preserved much, however, which is why today we can enjoy such technologies as the waffle iron.
Again, there was specific achievements specific to the Apache tribe, but distinction has been lost over the generations, especially in the 1970s when 'Cherokee Nation' was a top-ten single.
Apache Indians enjoy the status of being designated 'first residents', with profit-sharing of resources found on their lands before white people figured out what they had. They also provide gaming services, moccasins, and have an extensive distribution of server software essential to the upkeep of the internets. The Apache are also accredited for designing the Apache Longbow assault helicopter, which they used in their wars against the Americans, but lost because they didn't have fuel.
Apaches: Death by cow shit
This is an extremely well regarded British documentary filmed by a local British primary school on the way of life of the Apache Indians. Six children from St Gein’s played the roles of the cowboys and Indians primary while the film was directed by Sam Peckinpaw of Straw Dogs fame. In the documentary the children enact various battles of Geronimo's campaign, even using actual lines from the events such as "Oooooh right men," "what about Michael and me we’re still dressed as Indians", and of course "Aw right guvenr, dat rotter Geronimo nicked me chips!" They also say "You Dick!" as we all know slang for men's nut sacks is prime materiel for primary school education.
While acclaimed by most critics for it's authenticity, a small minority attacked the film on the grounds of anachronism stemming from scenes where the Apache warriors are run over by tractors, die from drinking rat poison, are crushed to death by the lightest metal bars in the history of the world, drive tractors of cliffs and drown in big piles of cow shit. Details of the filming are limited as all the actors mysteriously died in accidents bearing an uncanny resemblance to the one-screen death scenes. The only details known are that Peckinpaw drove a huge rubbish van stuffed full off £100 notes up to the local police station right before the filming of said death scenes.
The film was released in schools to strong acclaim, though a small minority of parents and teachers felt exposing children to graphic levels of blood, crushing, prolonged scenes of distress, misery, grief, horror and gratuitous swearing may have been slightly inappropriate. However these criticisms have been denounced by Doctor Mai Rail who announced, "Not only are critics of this film all a bunch of Gypo harbouring Packies but are at the very root of the downfall of human civilisation!" While some have pointed out Dr Rail only has a degree in acronyms she went on to criticise her rivals or their prudishness in her latest book The Dark Knight, Knife Crime and other working class conspiracies. While not due for release until next year extracts are availble in her books Homo Sexual: The Pink and fluffy menace and Asylum Seekers, Scum of the Earth or Satan's little Helpers?
- Geronimo (1829-1909) was a fearsome fighter, statistician, and inventor, who developed methodologies to jump out of airplanes, nearly a century before they were invented. His troops conquered America in 1886, leading to a brief period of cooperation, conservation, and pitching of tents until 1892, when Grover Cleveland was elected chief of tribes and moved the capitol back to Washington, D.C.
- Cochise (1812-1874) led the first organized uprising against white settlers in 1861, leading then-president Abraham Lincoln to declare the natives 'enemy combatants', and locked them up without constitutional rights, which some historian argue was better than being shot dead.
- Big Bank (1956-present) led the Sugarhill gang of Apaches to victory over Snoop Dog and Dr. Dre. They used their mad ryming skills to knock Snoop and Dre back to 1973 Hoboken, New Jersey A.K.A. the worst place in the universe.
Apache also made the song Cotton Eye Joe. ..While the Sugar Hill Gang made the song Apache.
