Witch doctor says, "What have you been eating?"
Cannibal says, same thing I usually eat. Missionaries."
Doc says, "What did they look like?"
"Like usual: Short fat white guys, bald heads, brown robes."
Doc says, "How did you cook 'em?"
"Like usual: Put em in a pot, filled it up with water, built a fire underneath."
Doc says, "There's your problem! You cooked em wrong?"
"What do you mean?"
