I just kept waiting for the lion to eat the guys. But that was so fucking adorable.

I'm teary-eyed now. That was just what I needed. Thanks, Jen!

I love that one. =)

But, uhh, FAKE. Not the original story, but the whole reunion shit. Don't buy it one bit, especially the "introduced to wife" bullshit.

That's adorable. And you can tell it's real, too, because they clearly had the lion do the subtitling.

That was the tensest fucking two minutes and twenty-eight seconds I've spent watching Youtube in a long, long time. I was sure the entire time that the lion was going to tear them to fucking pieces and, frankly, still can't believe that their shocking and painful deaths -- complete with tragic expressions of betrayal and confusion -- weren't edited out at the end.

It's especially tense when the lion jumps on the one guy: Oh fuck, oh fuck, he's lion food. Oh wait, the lion's just hugging him.

Harrod's sells lion cubs!? I thought the platypus I bought at Wal-Mart last month was a find...

Are they trained to hunt pit bulls?

I find the lion's name amusing - Christian - kinda like naming a polar bear 'Seal'.

OMG! That really made me cry! I thought it was going to be some sick, gruesome thing and then it was like me with my kitty!!! That is the best thing I have ever seen!!! Thank you!

That was very sweet.

@14: Food for thought. Let us prey on the matter.

Thank you.

Awww. So cute. That's how my cat hugs -- he puts both paws around your neck and then nudges with his head. He of course, is not as big as a lion.

Sad how teh internets have conditioned me to expect things like that to end in the lion tearing out the guy's throat. Glad that is not how it happened for once.

While the lion was hugging his former owners I bet he was thinking "Take me home, guys! Hunting for food is hard! I'll be a good cat, I promise! Got any kibble on you? Oh, yeah, and take her too, alright?"

Oh my gosh. I loved this. It reminded me of my dog that died last year. True love.
