I saw an advertisement on TV yesterday for AT&T in which they claimed that
people in New Guinea use a talking drum system. To my knowledge such
systems are limited to Africa. I would appreciate it if someone with more
knowledge of New Guinea than I have would let me know if I'm right in my
suspicion that AT&T's playing fast and loose with the facts.
