This is the joke: “I came here in peace, seeking gold and slaves

This joke is one of many self-contradicting, demented lines from this essay/monologue, in which the narrator is trapped in a cage, taunting and threatening some Martians, while unknowingly proving that he deserves to be in that cage. This is a typical passage: “You may kill me, either on purpose or by not making sure that all the surfaces in my cage are safe to lick. But you can’t kill an idea. And that idea is: me chasing you with a big wooden mallet.” In its context, “I came here in peace, seeking gold and slaves” might be the most deluded, deranged line out of a masterpiece of deluded derangement.
