Just a note before I begin, this is not mine. I found it in a magazine called Wacky But True.
Do you think a lion can laugh? No? Surely that mouth opens so wide to show its teeth in a big grin? Or lets rip with a real belly laugh at something really funny?
Or puts its ears back - have you noticed?
Try these jokes on a lion next time you go to a zoo. What? You don't know where the zoo is? Ask grandma and grandpa to take you there next school holidays.
Q: How much does a lion trainer have to know?
A: More than the lion!
A smile there?
Why do lions always eat raw meat?
A: Because they don't know how to cook!
Oh, my! That's a ripper. A nod of the head?
Why does a lion have a tail tuft on his tail?
A: Where ELSE would he have a tail tuft?
A swish of the tail?
Q:Why did the lion lose at poker?
A: Because he was playing with a cheetah!
Hehehe. Cheater, did he get that? Mmmmm.
Q: Where does a lion sleep?
A: Anywhere he wants to!
Not even a wink?
A lion woke up one morning with the urge to be king of his fellow beasts. He strode over to a monkey, and roared "Who is the mightiest of animals?"
"You are, master," said the monkey, cowering. The lion saw a warthog.
"Who is the mightiest of animals?" roared the lion.
"You are sir," said the warthog. Next the lion met an elephant.
"Who's the mightiest of animals?" roared the lion. The elephant grabbed the lion with his trunk, swung him in the air, slammed him ten times against a tree trunk, threw him into a dense patch of thorns, and strolled away.
"Okay," shouted the lion. "There's no need to turn nasty just because you don't know the answer!"
Now that is really funny! Did he laugh out loud?
Perhaps that lion doesn't have a funny bone after all.
Better not tickle him and see, you most likely can't outrun him.
