I was just waiting for someone to ask that, Christine!....

Who’s the King of the Jungle?

The lion goes out for a walk one day, strutting his stuff.
Out on the savannah he comes across a group of gazelle grazing.
“Hey you!’ yells the lion in his most imperious voice. “Who’s the king of the jungle?’
‘Why, you are, Mr. Lion!” the gazelle answer timidly. “Everyone knows that!”.
“Yeah, well don’t you forget it!” says the lion gruffly and he swaggers on.

Then he came to a group of monkeys playing among the trees.
“Hey you!’ yells the lion ferociously. “Who’s the king of the jungle?”
The monkeys stop playing and cower on their branches.
“Why, you are, Mr. Lion, sir!” they answered nervously “Everyone knows that!”
“Yeah, well don’t you forget it!” snarls the lion and he walks proudly on.

Next he comes upon a huge bull elephant contentedly munching on the leaves of a tree.
“Hey you!" yells the lion in his biggest, baddest voice “Who’s the king of the jungle?”
The elephant stops munching and looks round at the lion.
Then with his trunk he picks up the lion by the scruff of its neck, swings it around his head three or four times and smashes it face first into a tree. He drops the battered lion and carries on munching at his leaves.

After a few minutes the lion picks himself up and staggers back along the path.
Before leaving he turns round and mumbles “There’s no need to get mad just ‘cos you don’t know the right answer!”
