Fresh of the news wire.... (cue news music...now...)
This off the Reuters newswire and i could not resist posting this for sheer comic and weirdness value. This is very odd indeed and i thought many here would find this interesting and more than a little bit odd. The original story is at Reuters.
"TAIPEI (Reuters) - A man leaped into a lion's den at the Taipei Zoo on Wednesday to try to convert the king of beasts to Christianity, but was bitten in the leg for his efforts.
"Jesus will save you!" the 46-year-old man shouted at two African lions lounging under a tree a few meters away.
"Come bite me!" he said with both hands raised, television footage showed.
One of the lions, a large male with a shaggy mane, bit the man in his right leg before zoo workers drove it off with water hoses and tranquilizer guns. " Full story.
I guess not everyone wants to be a convert. Sounds a little like reverse vampirism to me, if such a thing could exist. The cure is in the bite?
