Rose Petals Deter Lions in New York

Email Print

I wonder if the scribblers at the New York Times carry rose petals with them while riding in cabs. I am reminded of the story of a cab driver in New York who threw rose petals out his window while driving. His passenger inquired as to the reason for his doing so. “To keep lions away from us,” he replied. “But how can that possibly work?,” the passenger intoned. The cabbie responded: “you don’t see any lions, do you?”

I would be very interested in knowing how many lions  terrorists TSA has actually captured with their groping. I mean genuine terrorists, not grandmothers with knitting needles, breast-feeding mothers, six-month old infants in diapers, people with finger-nail clippers, etc.
