Diplomatic Chance

An African ambassador visited Russia and was entertained by his
opposite number, the Russian ambassador. For three days, the African
ambassador was wined, dined, and generally treated to the best
hospitality that Russia had to offer.

On the last day of his visit, the Russian ambassador said, “As your
stay is coming to an end, it’s time for you to play our traditional
game, Russian roulette. One of the six chambers of this gun is loaded
– you spin the cylinder, point the gun at your head, and pull the
trigger.” This fazed the African slightly, but he was a proud man of a
warrior people, and to show fear would be unthinkable. Both men took
their guns, spun, and pulled the triggers. Both chambers were empty,
and both ambassadors breathed a sigh of relief.

The African ambassador was impressed with the courageous game, and
thought hard about the subject before the Russian Ambassador was due
to visit his country the next year. When the visit came, the African
ambassador treated the Russian with all hospitality, until the final
day of his stay.

Leading him to a private room in the palace, the African ambassador
spoke, “Now, time for you to sample our game, African roulette”. He
then led the Russian into the room, the only occupants of which were
six stunning and naked women. The African ambassador said, “These
women are the most beautiful members of one of our tribes. Any one of
them will give you a oral sex – take your pick”. The Russian was not
entirely averse to this idea, but he couldn’t see the connection with
Russian Roulette. He said, “Well, ok, great, but where’s the roulette
part? Where’s the danger?”

With a big grin on his face, the African ambassador answered: “One of
them’s a cannibal.”
