Writer's Block: Funniest Thing Ever.

In between visits to national parks in Africa in 2000 we paid a visit to a sanctuary for old and injured lions.  There was one enclosure that had this rather moth bitten old lion who was a permanent resident of the sanctuary as there was no way he'd survive if they released him back in to the wild.  I went right up to the edge to watch this guy and was thrilled when he started to slowly amble over.  About 2 feet from the fence he just turned around.  I assumed he wasn't that interested and was about to walk off.  What I didn't realise was that what he was really thinking was 'Oh great, another one!!!" and he promptly released a jet of pee out through fence that managed to get me in the face (seriously!) and down my torso and arms. 

Actually as I write this I'm not sure I find it funny rather than cringeworthy!  But having said that, the others in my group thought it was hysterical so I  guess it was funny :)  I mean seriously, how many people can honestly say that they've been marked by a lion??

Yes definitely a story that is more amusing for those who hear it than me :) I believe there was a beautiful aroma off me after the event as well. After it happened one of the guys who works there said to me, "Oh yeah, he does that all the time to people"!!! Wouldn't you think they'd have mentioned it in advance of the event rather than after!

Oh no! At least you had a memorable trip.
