BIKER STORY Receives New York Times Best
A biker is riding by 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
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 addressing the biker 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'll make sure this won't go unnoticed. I'm a
journalist from the New York Times, you know, 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 journalist leaves.
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: *
