    A Harley rider is passing the zoo, when he sees a little girl leaning
    into the lion's cage. Suddenly, the lion grabs her by the cuff of her
    jacket and tries to pull her inside to slaughter her, under the eyes
    of her screaming parents. The biker jumps off his bike, 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 New York Times reporter has watched the whole event.. The
    reporter says, "Sir, this was the most gallant and brave thing I saw a
    man do in my whole life."

    The biker 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'm a journalist from the New York
    Times, 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
    have?"

    The biker replies, "I'm a U.S. Marine and a Republican."

    The following morning the biker buys The New York Times to see if
    it indeed brings news of his actions, and reads, on front page:

    Thanks Big Black Dog!

    And to think, I have been accused of "twisting" a story by posting an "out of context" headline.... LMAO
