This one got passed around on blogs a few years ago. I usually try to avoid those hat have been seen before, but this picture was honestly too damn cool to pass up.

Guy 2 - Fucking brilliant!

Aaaand THIS is what draws me out of lurkerdom.

I love how cool the lion looks: woke up this morning, ate a gazelle, slept a few hours, rode in a sidecar around a thunderdome. Yawn.

Steph: and awesome it is.

EL: Thanks for posting! Yep, I love how calm and patient he looks.

This really is the coolest thing ever.

Oh, this is too, too wonderful!

downtown guy said...

Agreed!

But something keeps bothering me---I mean, how does that work with four wheels? I guess that's why a lion is absolutely required for ballast.

A tiger might also work.
