Le Missionnaire et la Sauvage

"Un sauvage va trouver un missionaire et lui dit:
----Mon père, baptisez-moi; je veux devenir crétien.
Le missionnaire lui répond:
----Ca n'est pas possible, parce que la religion chrétienne ne permet pas la polygamie et vous avez pleusiers femmes.
Le pauvre sauvage s'en va très triste. Quelques semaines après, il retourne et dit au missionnaire:
----Maintenant baptisez-moi, je n'ai plus qu'une femme.
----Qu'avez-vous fait aux autres? dit le missionnaire.
----Oh! je les ai mangées, dit simplement le sauvage.

From Lisons Donc by Emile B de Sauzé found in rsc's library of books, from 3rd form French and my recollection inspired by Le Petit Prince.
