Amazonian caper

Crossed spears on a path to warn intruders to stay away.

Have you heard the story of the man caught by Xingu Indians?


Well, they struck seventeen spears in him and half cut off his head and when his mates found him they asked, 'How do you feel?' 'Fine,' he replied, 'but it hurts like hell when I laugh.'
Humor in the Amazon, from Adrian Cowell's 'The Heart of the Forest'. (earlier, earlier)
