I love the wonderful "real" character you presented --could not imagine how he could possibly have eaten the delicacy presented on his trip. I couldn't help but be glad the pranked got pranked! This is a delightful story!
Sorry--That's "pranker" got pranked!

Merle was my cousin. He told this true story every time he came back to the States to speak at different churches. People absolutely LOVED him and never tired of hearing him tell how the monkey brains tasted, how Thelma gagged but tried hard not to offend the hosts. Worse, the family refused Merle's offer to share the raw brains with them because they were such a delicacy and the hosts wanted to show how much they appreciated the missionary couple driving all that distance to visit them. :-)

Oh my. I wondered where this story was going to go. You kept me in suspense. Well written. I could never have guessed the ending. I can't imagine what that was like.

Doesn't God have a great sense of humour!!! Merl - always stretching the limits yet without any sense of defiance. I loved this story - told so well. I hope it's winner.

Well written story, I was hooked
but shocked at the ending.
Glad I won't ever be in that
situation. A real attention getter.
