How’d that work out?

[A man who crept into a lion cage at Kiev Zoo] “…shouted ‘God will save me, if he exists‘, lowered himself by a rope into the enclosure, took his shoes off and went up to the lions,” the official said. “A lioness went straight for him, knocked him down and severed his carotid artery.”

      1. Not so much that, surely — woudn’t it be that he didn’t idiotically wander in there on purpose to prove himself right for the purpose of his own vanity? Gods don’t tend to rate that kind of behaviour very highly.


      2. See, that’s what all the kids think when they start, but before you know it they’ll have you and then you’ll never be able to get away! And you’ll have to go to the doctor to get special patches to quell the cravings… oh, wait, that’s some other thing.


  1. One wonders what point he was trying to make… was he a suicidal atheist, or a delusional believer? (OK, tautological I know, but I can’t be bothered juggling vocabulary at this hour of the morning).


  2. hah!

    reminds me of that joke from my sunday school daze:

    “guy ties himself to a lampost during a flood. the waters at his knees when a passerby in a landrover says
    ‘hey buddy, untie yourself and get in the truck! its a flood!’
    but the guy replies “no, god will save me”
    when the waters up to his chest, a guy in a dingy comes by
    ‘hey buddy, untie yourself and get in the boat! you’re gonna drown!’
    but the guy replies “oh ye of little faith, god will save me”.
    by the time a helicopter flies by, the water’s up to his chin, a guy in the chopper says:
    ‘hey buddy, grab the rope i’ll pull you to safety!’
    again the guy replies “no! god will save me!”

    the guy drowns. and as he stands before judgement, he’s a bit pissed off.
    “God” he says.
    “when i was tied to the lampost and called for your help, you let me drown!”

    God says “dude, i sent you a car, a boat AND a helicopter!! what else did you want?!”


  3. I think this is actually proof of god,

    God: “hey St Peter check out this idiot”
    St Peter: “no way he’s not going into the lion enclosure”
    God: “yes way, he is actually lowering himself into the enclosure on a rope”
    St Peter: “Shit look that lioness is totally coming over to him and…”
    God: “Oooh OWNED!”
