Gotta love the viral email when they make you LOL 🙂
A Harley Biker is riding by the zoo in Washington, DC when he sees a little girl leaning into the lion’s cage. Suddenly, the lion grabs her by the collar of her
jacket and tries to pull her inside to slaughter her, under the eyes of her
screaming parents. The biker jumps off his Harley, runs to the cage and hits
the lion square on the nose with a powerful punch.
Whimpering from the pain, the lion jumps back, letting go of the girl, and the
biker brings her to her terrified parents, who thank him endlessly. A reporter
has watched the whole event.
The reporter addressing the Harley rider says, ‘Sir, this was the most gallant
and brave thing I’ve seen a man do in my whole life.’
The Harley rider replies, ‘Why, it was nothing, really, the lion was behind
bars. I just saw this little kid in danger and acted as I felt right.’
The reporter says, ‘Well, I’ll make sure this won’t go unnoticed. I’m a
journalist, you know, and tomorrow’s paper will have this story on the front
page… So, what do you do for a living and what political affiliation do you
The biker replies, “ I’m a U.S. Marine and a Republican .”
The journalist leaves.
The following morning the biker buys the paper to see if it indeed brings news
of his actions, and reads, on the front page:
“U.S. MARINE ASSAULTS AFRICAN IMMIGRANT AND STEALS HIS LUNCH”
… and THAT pretty much sums up the media’s approach to the news these days ..
