June 11, 2010: Good Kitty

Jamu like to be massaged and tickled, but likes "This little piggy" the best.

If anyone else tried to play This Little Piggy with a fullygrown lion, they'd be in danger of going wee wee wee all the way to casualty.
But Alex Larenty, 40, from Chipping Norton, is a fearless and highly skilled animal handler at The Lion Park near Johannesburg and is in complete control of this situation.
The beast having its paw tickled is nine-year-old Jamu (weight 550lb). 'He loves it - it's his favourite game,' said Mr Larenty, a 50-year-old Briton who moved to Africa from Oxfordshire.
Remember, 550 lbs, so adjust your recipes accordingly.

delirious lion

Fearless, highly skilled, in complete control.
It sounds more like stupid, low skilled and complete bullshit.
And by the way: Where is the Jamus dick?

spudcon  Friday Jun 11 07:41 AM

Jamus has his dick where his toes are.

I don't see his wee-wee, but I DO see what looks like a tiny, fuzzy lion nut.

mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm....lion nuts.....

"This Little Piggy", the other white meat.

dmg1969  Friday Jun 11 12:39 PM

I seem to remember someone else who played around with wild animals...

Trilby  Friday Jun 11 12:49 PM

^^^ if I said that wasn't funny, I'd be "lion" !

jinx  Friday Jun 11 12:51 PM

I've played 'this little piggy' with a 6lb cat and come away wounded - this guy is a jackass.
Complete control. Uh huh.

Sheldonrs  Friday Jun 11 01:40 PM

It doesn't take much to go from tender lion to tender loin.

BigV  Friday Jun 11 02:04 PM

Adjust accordingly... riiiight. There's **NO WAY** that dude is 550 lbs. I don't think tartare even qualifies as a "recipe", chop (chomp?) and eat.

Wow, they did a pretty good job on his face.

Pete Zicato  Friday Jun 11 04:07 PM

I dunno. I think he looks animatronic.

They lied, he died -that's his embalmed corpse.

Lion Burgers

you will need:

Industrial forester's wood chipper
dead goat
unleashed hungry lion
Burger press
lots of time.

Turn chipper on, throw goat into chipper. wait a few seconds. make burgers

The lioness behind them is thinking, "I can't believe I used to be into that weirdo toe freak."

It took the author a REALLY long time to write that article, OK?

jimhelm  Thursday Dec 23 08:56 PM

oh.. and holy lurker, batman.

jimhelm  Thursday Dec 23 08:57 PM

I've just equaled your post count

Clodfobble  Thursday Dec 23 10:27 PM

He's consistent, too. Roughly one post every 2 years. See ya in 2012, eastepp!

Glinda  Saturday Dec 25 11:58 AM

Pish posh. Lions are easy. Look at me with this killer cat (taken a few weeks ago)...

See? Nothin' to it.

Trilby  Saturday Dec 25 05:21 PM


Shawnee123  Saturday Dec 25 11:57 PM

Glinda, I am completely jealous. And you look awesome!

Glinda  Sunday Dec 26 11:10 AM

Thank you!

I hate having my picture taken (usually stand in the back behind something large), but I couldn't resist that cute little kitty, and the pics we took with him turned out great.

You can't even see how gigantic my pot-belly is!

Griff  Sunday Dec 26 11:12 AM

That is too cute Glinda! Did you take him home?

Glinda  Sunday Dec 26 11:25 AM

I SO wanted to! I've got plenty of land here, but I think that little cutie will be better off with people properly trained to raise him. The pic was taken at Cabo san Lucas a few weeks ago when I was on vacation.

There's a booth along the beach tourist area run by a group called Wild Cabos. They're trying to raise funds to build a reservation area to preserve animals that are in danger of extinction, and to provide a place for wild animals that people tried to raise at home (and then found out how crazy that idea was once the critter got too large to manage).

They charge $20 and you get a nice 5 x 7" pic (and you can take as many pics as you want with your own camera). I suppose it could have been a scam - I don't know - but I simply could not pass up an opportunity to play with a lion cub. I mean, how often do you get a chance like that?

Sundae  Monday Dec 27 06:31 AM

O h Glinda - I can't believe how smiley that lion is!
Then again... he's sat in your lap, what's not to smile about.

I know what you mean about worrying it's a scam, but as long as the little chaps looked happy and healthy I think you have to take some things on trust.

xoxoxoBruce  Wednesday Dec 29 08:49 AM

That kitty looks stoned.
Scam or not, you certainly got your $20 worth.

Glinda  Wednesday Dec 29 08:10 PM

Prolly wasn't as stoned as I was (we'd just eaten lunch, which included BIIIG margaritas)!

I completely agree, it was well worth the cost. There've been exactly ZERO opportunities for me in the past to cuddle a fat-bellied lion cub, and I don't expect there will be any more in the future, so yeah, I definitely got the best of that deal!

But you can bet, if I ever get back to Cabo, I'm going to stop by their booth again and play with whatever little critter they've got there. Ooooh yeah.
