Top 10 List of Lion Features

LionMany people I talk to are super-excited about Lion and I thought it was time to share in that excitement by creating a List of Ten on my favorite lion features. Here goes, in no particular order:

  1. Lion are carnivores and therefore would share my love of bacon.
  2. Lions are family animals, though they are not exactly monogamous.
  3. Lions are vulnerable. I like a creature that is open to feelings and emotions.
  4. Lions have scary teeth that would make them great vampires if they need a second line of work.
  5. Lions are considered “a symbol of power, courage and nobility.”
  6. When a lion growls, the sound can be heard up to 5 miles away.
  7. Perfect for social networking, lions are “the world’s most social felines.”
  8. Some lions sing songs, usually in English, according to Disney anyway.
  9. Male lions have manes. Everyone should have a mane man.
  10. Lions, much like me, are mostly lazy. They can be found “sleeping, napping, and resting” for “up to 21 hours.”

I’m sure this list has inspired you. If you cannot afford a lion, however, do not despair. They are easy to make and require only a few things, like paper plates and crayons.

Please Think When You Abbreviate

Dear World,

I normally do not like pointing out little errors of spelling, grammar, punctuation, mechanics, and other minor issues in public, but sometimes you go too far.

Va Ass Teachers of English (yeah, really)

Please think before you abbreviate
