In the South Pacific, there is a long narrow island that used to be occupied by two groups of cannibals, which each had their villages at either end of the island. Two cannibals were walking in opposite directions and encountered each other. The one from the west end said to the other, "Hi, how are you today?"
The east end cannibal said, "Not too good, been having some stomach problems."
West says, "Really, what have you been eating?"
"Well, the usual. Missionaries."
'Oh, how are you cooking 'em?"
"We just put 'em in a big pot and boil 'em."
West says, "Do these missionaries wear brown. and they're bald on top except for a fringe of hair all 'round?"
"Well! There's your problem. You're boiling 'em. Those are friars!"
