A lion in the Orange County Zoo was lying in the sun licking its butt when a visitor turned to the zookeeper and said: "That's a docile old thing, isn't it?" "No way," said the zookeeper: "It's the most ferocious beast in the zoo. Why, just an hour ago, it dragged a New York Yankees fan into the cage and completely devoured him." "That’s incredible" said the astonished visitor: "but why is it laying there licking its butt?" "The poor thing is trying to get the taste out of its mouth."
