A missionary who had spent years showing a tribe
of natives how to farm and build things to be
self-sufficient gets word that he is to return
He realizes that the one thing he never taught
the natives was how to speak English, so he takes
the chief and starts walking in the forest. He
points to a tree and says to the chief, "This is
The chief looks at the tree and grunts, "Tree."
The missionary is pleased with the response.
They walk a little farther and the padre points to
a rock and says, "This is a rock."
Hearing this, the chief looks and grunts, "Rock."
The padre is really getting enthusiastic about the
results when he hears a rustling in the bushes. As
he peeks over the top, he sees a couple in the
midst of heavy romantic activity. The padre is
really flustered and quickly responds, "Riding a bike."
The chief looks at the couple briefly, pulls out his
blow gun and kills them both.
The padre goes ballistic and yells at the chief that
he has spent years teaching the tribe how to be
civilized and kind to each other, so how could he just
kill these people in cold blood that way?
The chief replied, "My bike."
