I knew it was rude to stare, but the woman was topless, had two heads but no noses, and was carrying a bazooka. She greeted me in a thick accent. “You’re the missionary?”

“Yes, ma’am.”

Her mouths spoke in unison. “How lovely. You can discuss lodging with the priests over there.” I followed her directions to a large swampy hut.

Suddenly, I was surrounded by crocodiles! It’s a trap! I realized. I wondered how many other unwanted missionaries had met their end here.

But then one crocodile cleared its throat. “Hello, brother. We’ve gathered here to receive the Good News.”

    Suddenly, staring at the topless lady doesn't seem so bad! Brilliantly surreal :)
