A biology graduate student went to Borneo to take some samples for his
thesis work. Accompanied by his trusty guide, he too seeks out a very
remote locale for researching the mating behaviour of the giant rat of
Around dusk of the first day, he's sitting by the campfire with his
guide when in the distance, he hears tribal drums. After a few minutes,
the guide starts to look worried and announces, "I don't like the sound
of those drums."
The dusk turns to evening. The drums get louder. The guide says, "I
really don't like the sound of those drums."
Evening turns to dead of night. The drums get louder and louder, until it
is obvious that the drummers must be quite close. The guide reiterates,
"I *really* don't like the sound of those drums."
Suddenly the drums stop, and a voice from the darkness cries out,
"Hey man, he's not our regular drummer!"
