On a Safari

Some New Yorkers were on a safari in the jungles of a little-explored faraway country when they were captured by cannibals.

"Oh, yes!" the chief of the tribe exclaimed. "We’re going to put you all into big pots of water, cook you and eat you."

"You can’t do that to me," the tour leader said. "I’m the editor of The New Yorker!"

"Well," he responded, "tonight you will be editor-in-chief!"
