From www.ajokeaday.com - 07/02/18:
|Patrons at the zoo were astonished to see
an old man jump over the bars of the lion's cage. Seemingly
oblivious to the danger, he walked among the fierce creatures
holding the latest bestselling book in his hands, intently perusing
its contents. The spectators were beside themselves.
"What in the world is he doing?" shouted one.
"Is he crazy? He's going to get killed!" yelled another.
"Don't worry about him," replied the man's son. "That's just my dad. He likes to read between the lions."
