THE DETROIT LIONS

While walking around downtown the other day, I came across these lions arguing. Seems they were about to play basketball but they each wanted to play with their respective basketballs. The were hissing and snarling at each other;and the language the were using. Finally, I had enough. "Have some 'pride' I screamed." "They'll be her shortly," they retorted.

  1. a marginally dangerous imagination. It helps me remember that it's better to be a little crazy than be considered normal and boring.

  6. Or, if you've seen the movie about Coco Chanel (Coco Before Chanel), you could say it is two Leo women arguing over which dress to wear!

  7. I think I have to have the sports gene (which I do not) to entirely appreciate this post but I get the gist of it. You've been quite creative with your anthropomorphism.

  16. I have seen these lions around, the must have relatives around the world. Probably changes only the ball game of the quarrel...
    A really funny post!

  17. Oh no, soccer playing lions... true story: there was a dog toy company that made a ball advertised as "indestructible" in the catalogs. Lifetime guarantee! Money back! Then, one day, someone gave one of the balls to a lion....

  19. You are too funny! I'm glad you didn't get any closer because they don't look amused.

  20. I'm not a sports person except for SEC football but I remember well that everyone we met while we lived in Ft Lauderdale was from "somewhere else", mainly "up north". Your title made me laugh.
