Cat's Cradle Chapter 61 Summary

What a Corporal Was Worth

  • At the customs shed, John spies a sign says that anyone caught practicing Bokononism will be hooked.
  • Another sign is a wanted poster for Bokonon. Dead or alive naturally. The offer is 10,000 corporals.
  • Yet another sign proclaims San Lorenzo to be a Christian nation.
  • All foot play will be punched by the claw—whatever foot play is. Wonder if spooning is allowed?
