Darwin Kitties

Remember folks, just because they look like overgrown housecats doesn't mean they are:

Dane Kieser, 16, was stroking the ear of a lioness at a breeding enclosure at the Rhino and Lion Nature Reserve on Sunday when he was attacked and pulled under the fence into the lion's den.

Technically not a Darwin award nominee. Why? Hey, the dude had a reason:

Dane apparently took his girlfriend with him to the enclosure where he stuck his arm through the fence to stroke the lioness.

Yup, he was trying to impress a chick. Guys around the world are nodding their heads sagely and thinking, "there but for the grace of God..."

But ya know, now that I think about it, if my house cats weighed 1300 pounds I'd keep them in a cage too. Small+evil = harmlessly amusing. Large + evil = not so much.

harmless my ass. I have nice claw marks running down my hand from one of your "small+evil= harmlessly amusing" cats. Why do I have these? Because I stopped petting her...
