Christian the Lion

This is a warm, heartwarming video about a pet. Not a normal pet, but a lion that was raised at home until it became too large to keep. It was then released into the Kenya wild. This video shows a reunion with its owners a year after being released...

I just love animals, don't you?

The above story reminded me of the old joke about the man who was in Africa, and a lion came out of the brush and was about to jump on him. The man did not know what to do, but he prayed... "Lord, please make this lion a Christian". Almost immediately, the lion bowed it's head, and put it front paws together, and spoke, "Father, I thank thee for this meal I am about to eat. ..."

Joke of the Day
An Italian walks into a bank in New York City and asks for the loan officer. He tells the loan officer that he is going to Italy on business for two weeks and needs to borrow $5,000.

The bank officer tells him that the bank will need some form of security for the loan, so the Italian hands over the keys to a new Ferrari.

The car is parked on the street in front of the bank. The Italian produces the title and everything checks out. The loan officer agrees to accept the car as collateral for the loan.

The bank's president and its officers all enjoy a good laugh at the Italian for using a $250,000 Ferrari as collateral against a $5,000 loan.

An employee of the bank then drives the Ferrari into the bank's underground garage and parks it there.

Two weeks later, the Italian returns, repays the $5,000 and the interest, which comes to $15.41. The loan officer says, "Sir, we are very happy to have had your business, and this transaction has worked out very nicely, but we are a little puzzled.

While you were away, we checked you out and found that you are a multimillionaire. What puzzles us is, why would you bother to borrow $5,000?"

The Italian replies: "Where else in New York City can I park my Ferrari for two weeks for only $15.41 and expect it to be there when I return?"
