Santa and Banta fly to the south sea islands to study the natives. They go to two adjacent islands and set to work. A few months later Santa takes a boat over to the other island to see how Banta is doing. When he gets there, he finds Banta standing among a group of natives.

    "Greetings! How is it going?" says Santa.

    "Wonderful!" says Banta, "I have discovered an important fact about the local language! Watch!"

    He points at a palm tree and says, "What is that?"

    The natives, in unison, say, "Umbalo-gong!"

    He then points at a rock and says, "And that?"

    The natives again intone, "Umbalo-gong!"

    "You see!", says the beaming Banta, "They use the SAME word for 'rock' and for 'palm tree'!"

    "That is truly amazing!" says the astonished Santa, "On the other island, the same word means 'index finger'!"
