There were three guys traveling in Africa, a Frenchman, a Japanese, and an
American. They are captured by a tribe of fierce headhunters. The witch doctor
says to them, "We are going to slaughter you, but you might take some
comfort in the fact that we don't believe in waste here, and that therefore
every part of your body will go to some use. We will weave baskets out of your
hair, we will render your bones for glue, and we will tan your skin and stretch
it over wooden frames for canoes. Now we are going to allow you an honorable
death, so I will give you each a knife and allow you to say some last words
before killing yourselves."
The Japanese guy yells "Banzai!" and commits hari-kari.
The French guy yells "Vive la France!" and slits his throat.
Then the American guy takes the knife, pokes holes all over his body, and
yells, "There's your fucking canoe!"
