Whatever comes of the Cecil the Lion drama, the best thing to come out of the story is that there is a guy in Zimbabwe named Honest Trymore Ndlovu.
That is quite possibly the bestest name of anyone on the planet. It sounds like a wedding vow - Honest, Trymore, And Love You.
Investigators in Zimbabwe looking into the escape of Cecil the Lion from a national preserve and his subsequent death are finding a more complex picture than originally thought.
Former Texas veterinarian Kristen Lindsey, an expert on bow hunting for feral cat control said, "The first thing you need to ask yourself is 'why was this lion named Cecil in the first place?'"
Indeed. The country of Zimbabwe was formerly white-ruled Rhodesia, named after British mining tycoon Cecil Rhodes in 1895, after whom the Lion "Cecil" was apparently named. The end of white rule in Rhodesia is seen by many white supremacists as a significant defeat, as most recently demonstrated by the photograph of Charleston shooter Dylan Roof wearing a jacket decorated with the Rhodesian flag. It is not known at this time whether Roof and Cecil the Lion may have been in contact with each other.
Investigators also point to the fact that by leaving the park, Cecil's presence in the neighborhood where he was shot was definitely suspicious, particularly at night. "We gave Cecil a whole park to roam around in, but these seems to be another case where generosity only resulted in an ungrateful desire for more territory," Lindsey added.
Some residents near the park believe Cecil closely resembles a lion that was recently seen stalking area convenience stores. Said one neighbor, "I don't know if it was Cecil, but it had four legs and golden fur. Those lions all look alike to me anyway, and they're usually up to no good." Others familiar with the incident say that Cecil was "mouthing off" to local hunting guides who stopped Cecil to ask him why he was wearing a radio tracking collar. "We didn't know whether Cecil may have been violating probation, or whether perhaps the radio collar was stolen from another animal," a guide said, adding, "But instead of just explaining what he was doing outside of the park at night and where he got the collar, Cecil started making threats and was belligerently uncooperative with a routine stop."
Preliminary toxicology reports also indicate that Cecil had a high level of THC in his blood, and he may have been making a late night visit to a supplier. Some of the other animals in the park said that Cecil had a reputation as a small time dealer, and would regularly shake down wildebeest for loan repayments.
I don't know, but I suggest we wait until all the facts are in before reaching any conclusions.
Kind of hard to believe...
Huckabee, of course, wants to march them into Armageddon.
I don't think she can help herself. She is constantly masticating in public:
On edit: the fish one is Angela Merkel. I blame Google image search. Please also refer to my image posts on Bernie fondling an animal and having suspicious ties.
This one is mostly blue:
This one is mostly maroon:
This one has stripes:
I don't know. Have all of his ties been investigated?
About 30 degrees below the equator and toward the left.
You can make out Stonehenge and a road leading up to it.
Just like the ceremonial road leading up to Stonehenge in the UK.
No doubt about it. We need some big fuzzy enlargements of that.
Go ahead and alert, but the picture doesn't lie:
It's surprising how short memories can be.
In the last couple of cycles, the GOP has had quite field, and the lineup at this point really takes the cake.
However, as we should remember, the "LEADING GOP CANDIDATE" usually tends to be whomever got the most press within the last couple of weeks or so.
They will continue to trade that title about as often as "AL QAIDA NUMBER TWO KILLED" or "WORLD'S OLDEST PERSON DIES".
It's just that kind of story.
