Comic #1993

1 Native: It's still your pistol against our poison spears. You can't force us to release the pirates.
2 Ponsonby: Why do you want to eat them anyway?
2 Native: So we gain their abilities!
3 Ponsonby: What, the ability to be captured and eaten by a bunch of primitives with inferior weapons?
4 Native 2: They are rather pathetic. He has a point.
4 Long Tom: What? No he doesn't!

The idea of gaining the powers and abilities of a deceased person by consuming their bodies is one of the more widespread reasons for cannibalism in various cultures around the world.

Do not let players in your roleplaying games think of this.

2019-09-01 Rerun commentary: They've been in that pot over that fire for some time now. One hopes the water was originally cold and is heating up only slowly.

The natives also seem to have neglected to clear an area of plant growth around the fire. I hope they don't set the entire island on fire.
