How did I not know about Christian the lion, the internet sensation? I'm probably so out of the loop - and y'all have seen this story 14 times already, but geeeeesh. Talk about wham-o bam-o emotional-o. I am an animal lover (sort of over the top about my animals - Bogart Charles the princess cat, Izzy the alpha cat and Daisy, our English bulldog - she's the QUEEN), but if this story doesn't get you good :::sniff sniff::: I'm not sure what will.
So... the kids and I went over to my Dad's tonight for a visit and a trip to the downtown pizza joint. We got there, and my brother was playing a youtube video that I caught the end of. I thought, what in the Sam Hill IS this? An old, grainy video with the cheesiest of songs playing (um, think Whitney Houston from the early 90s - yep). Then it had me. Oh my heart. Christian the lion had me at hello. Oh yes. Yes he did.
Ummmm...my Dad cried. Yep.
The MSNBC story is here - and here are a few images of him. There even is a movie about the infamous Christian. Who knew?
And here's the video - put your earplugs in, my lovelies. Unless you are a Whitney lover. ;)
