Lion in Freezer

A UK health inspector recently reported finding the body of a dead lion in a restaurant's freezer during an inspection. The frozen animal was lying next to the food to be served to customers. The restaurant owner insisted he wasn't planning on serving the lion to customers. Instead, he was going to feed the meat to his dogs. He had received the lion from a nearby zoo. []

I'll bet he was lion about not going to serve the meat to his customers.

😕 Sorry..... But someone HAD to do it.

I've heard of a tiger in your tank, but not of a lion in your freezer.

Put another lion on the barbie ...

Does it taste like a certain domestic fowl?

Will dogs eat a frozen lion?

@KDP - Lions, being carnivors, have a very strong flavour. It is similar to wolf and more robust than fox. Some people claim it is better than Yeti.

OK, BMN. That pretty much ruins my supper.

This is just so furrbar. It was a golden opportunity. The only thing colder is my wife at times (or Patty when she's mad). I'm frozen in place thinking about this and those women.

I do not participate in cat fights ever.

So, the guy was lyin' about a lion lyin' in the freezer. These are the kinds of things that drive my wife's students 'round the bend.

tadchem: I bet they will. Maybe it tastes a bit strong, but I think the dogs will love that.

The only thing missing from this story is that it didn't happen in Lyon.

That would have been: A Lyonnais lying about a lion lying in his freezer in Lyon. (Is there someway to work mayonnaise into this story?)
