Vaguely interesting WSJ piece on an Egyptian guy who fights an uninterested lion
Best quotes from above article:
Mr. Al Essawy stepped into a steel cage with a 660-pound lion here in the middle of a wheat field in this farming hamlet. He glared at the lion and bared his teeth. He carried a “shield” made out of an old satellite dish.
Addressing the crowd of a few hundred Egyptians bused in for the spectacle, Mr. Al Essawy roared: “Who is the lion?”
“You are the lion!” a couple dozen shouted back.
The lion itself looked bored. One man in the crowd claimed it had just been fed a whole donkey and was therefore sleepy.
