Don't Shout At The Lions Lionel!

Never raise your voice at big cats. This is unnecessary & invariably rather dangerous. Another in the series of 'books I haven't quite written yet'

Oh my!

Damned lions!

For old times' sake I bought a ticket to see The Damned a couple of days back then due to another conversation I was inspired to think about how a lion with Dave Vanian's* hair would look - goth lion anyone?

*Could also apply to Morticia Addams & possibly Caitlin Moran

'taking a lion for a walk'

'drawing, is taking a lion for a walk' Paul Klee (or at least that's what I thought he said...)

Hercules (cross version)

I was rooting around old bits of artwork & found this picture of Hercules fighting the Nemean lion which was drawn for the cover of a book called 'Hercules The Hero' by Tony Bradman but rejected for being a bit too aggressive - I re drew it but quite like this version too - I love a bit of Greek mythology me!

The Guardian - Michael Holden's All Ears 21st August

I'd just like to point out that I'm extremely fond of giraffes & other aminals & I do not condone the shooting of them - this is only a picture IT'S NOT REAL!*
(*subtitled for the hard of thinking)
(Article by Michael Holden)
As is often acknowledged in this column, cab drivers are the commandos of casual conversation; the rest of us are just parachuting in when the groundwork's been done. I had the good fortune last week to be sat near one in a cafe as he shared stories of his fares' safari antics with his friends.

Man 1 "I been busy bringing the Americans in and out, been a few years now. I know some of them quite well."

Man 2 "What are they like?"

Man 1 "All right, well there's one I thought was all right. He was telling me how he likes to shoot things … animals. He goes over to Africa and has a go at anything that moves."

Man 2 "That still happens?"

Man 1 "Very much so. I'm not one to judge, but then he says he's getting hammered for freight costs, cos he flies all these things back over there and has 'em stuffed!"

Man 2 "Yeah?"

Man 1 "Oh yeah. I said, 'How does your wife feel about that?' And this is what really got to me, he says: 'She loves it. Her life's ambition is to shoot a giraffe.'"

Man 2 "A giraffe?"

Man 1 (solemn) "A giraffe."

Man 2 "I don't get it. At what point in someone's life would they wake up in the morning and say, 'I know what I need to do before I die. I know what's been missing. I got to shoot me a giraffe!'"

Man 3 "What's the psychology behind that? Is she really small?"

Man 2 "That could be it."

Man 3 "Or is it that their heads are small, and a long way away?"

Man 1 "A fucking giraffe, though?"

Man 2 "Unbelievable."

The Natural World pt 1

A lion being menaced by a wooden chair - the lion's only natural predator
(hence the Lion Tamer's tool of choice)
