Siam: Kenneth on When He Whooped Along with a Pack of Gibbons


During an evangelistic bike tour Kenneth stopped to patch up his tire when, all of a sudden, a whole gang of gibbons came hooting down through the trees and began to crash along beside him, shouting, "Whoo whoo whoowhoowhoowhoo!" They were leaping and cavorting right there alongside him. Kenneth began to whoop back at them, and they went along for a couple hundred yards or so, whooping at each other. They were swinging alongside the narrow path. They all wanted to see this funny fellow.
