The ambassador of a small African nation chanced to visit 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 final day of his visit, the Russian ambassador said, “As your stay is coming to an end, it is 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 the cylinders, and then pulled the triggers.
Both chambers were empty, and both ambassadors breathed a sigh of relief. The African ambassador was very impressed with the courageous game, and thought hard about the subject before the Russian Ambassador was due to visit his country the next year.
A year later, 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 it is time for you to sample our game, African roulette.” So saying, he led the Russian into the room where the only occupants were six beautiful, 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 blow job. 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, 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 is a cannibal.”
