A Tribesman’s Necklace

A tourist was admiring the necklace worn by a tribesman at an exotic location.

“What is it made of?” she asked.

“Alligator’s teeth,” the local replied.

“I suppose,” she said patronizingly, “that they mean as much to you as pearls do to us?”

“Oh no,” the man replied, looking at the tourist as if she was the fool. “Anybody can open an oyster.”
