Bad Jokes
Two unusual animal tamers met, fell in love, and married--she,a Mexican woman who traced her family back to the ancient peoples of the Yucatan, and he, an American who had recently adopted Leo, King of the Beasts, from Jungle Rescue. He insisted she train the animal in the day and he would always take him for his nightly romp. "Why so rigid about who does what?" she queried. He replied, "Johnny Cash said years ago, 'Because you're Mayan,' I walk the lion."

—James Manista, Cleveland, Ohio
