We interrupt our regularly scheduled blog posts to bring this special news bulletin.
We have just learned that there was an attempted lionicide in a high school science lab near here today.
Apparently the class mascot was a bit disgruntled over his living conditions and threatened to remove himself - - - PERMANENTLY- - - from the lab.
In an heroic rescue attempt, the science teacher pulled him from his would-be guillotine, soothed his ruffled mane, fed him some animal crackers, and restored him to his rightful place as King of the Lab.
As this reporter left the scene, she heard the lion say, "Evan made me do it."
Absolutely no stuffed animals were harmed in any way during the production of this post.
