Captured By Cannibals
An Englishman, an Irishman and a Scotsman were captured by cannibals and told
that If they could not escape, each of them would be skinned and eaten and their
skin turned into a canoe. Each was allowed one weapon to help him escape. The
Englishman chose a gun but he soon ran out of bullets and was captured. He was
skinned, eaten and his skin turned into a canoe. The Scotsman chose a knife but
he was soon overpowered by The cannibals. He was skinned, eaten and his skin turned
into a canoe. The Irishman asked for a fork.
'A fork?' they said. 'You won't get very far with that.' The Irishman grabbed
The fork, pricked himself all over with it and said, 'now try turning my skin
into a canoe.'
