A lion in the 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 zoo keeper, "it's the most ferocious beast in
the zoo. Why just an hour ago it dragged a Frenchman into the
cage and completely devoured him."
"Hardly seems possible" said the astonished visitor, "So why does it just lay there licking its butt?"
"Well you see, the poor thing is only trying to get the taste out
of it's mouth."
