Did You Aorta This?

Headline: Lioness in zoo kills man who invoked God

The incident, Sunday evening when the zoo was packed with visitors, was the first of its kind at the attraction. Lions and tigers are kept in an "animal island" protected by thick concrete blocks.

Seems to me that guy must've been one of the thick, concrete blocks if he thought he could go in there and pull a stunt like that. He reportedly lowered himself down and shouted, "God will save me, if he exists."

Not only did he apparently miss the part in Sunday school about thou shalt not put the Lord thy God to the test, but also I'm thinking it was the whole IF part that eff-ed him up. If he would've said because instead, maybe we'd be reading a different story.

The lioness shouldn't be blamed for her actions at all. It can't be very often that an unexpected food delivery shows up. What a treat that must've been! And just like any other animal, I'm sure they enjoy a little people-food every now and then.

Maybe he was dropped in through a time machine from the Spanish Inquisition...except it was boiling water, instead of lions.

They better not have shot that lion. Did he think he was Daniel? What a way to go.

JB: guess it doesn't matter much now. :)

Fatty: thanks, read as much as or as little as you like, make yourself at home. :)

EOTR: Too bad he hadn't developed a Tarzan complex instead of Daniel. He might've been able to talk his way out.

ITJ: thanks!

At least he got the whole sentence out. Gruesome as it was, woulda been funny if he only got to "God will sa.."CHOMP!"...".
