Speaking of spring fever reminds
me of laziness and laziness reminds
of the time I vis'ted No Name Is
land in the South Pacific where the
famous No Name tribe lived.
They were called No Name be
cause the tribe was too lazy to
think up a name.
When they wanted to go any
where they rode donkeys instead of
h'rses so they wouldn’t have to
climb so high to get on.
I found the tribal m'niste r sit
ting under a banana tree one day
throwing corn in a nearby stream.
“What on earth are you doing,” I
asked, as I noted that he was throw

waters” he repl>ed.
“B'read on the wate r s?” I queri

“Well” he grunted, “that’s what
bread is before it’s shucked, shell

One day a snail crawled up on
his nose and finally shopped over
his right eye. Why d”n’t you blink
your eye and knock him off?” 1
“Be still,” he said, “and maybe
he’ll go away.
'When a few drops of ra*n fell he
wanted to know if that was rain,
said the sun was shining the last
time he looked. (That was the day
before when he had to open one eye
in o r der to see how to eat.
He lived under a banana tree be
cause the fruits w<>uld fall in his
mouth and slide down.
The only time he ever worked
was getting a visiting horticulturist
to cultivate a banana tree that
would grow peelless bananas.
