Trophy Hunt – Gargleblaster Microstories #262

Wealthy magnate Henry Worthy aimed at the male lion.

His manservant Potts prepared tea. “I believe this hunt is folly, sir.”

Worthy scoffed, “Who’ll stop me?”

Another lion pounced upon Worthy’s back.

Calmly, Potts sipped his tea. “I believe his mate will.”

About EagleAye

I like looking at the serious subjects in the news and seeking the lighter side of the issue. I love satire and spoofs. I see the ridiculous side of things all the time, and my goal is to share that light-hearted view.

    In place of Potts, I wouldn’t be so calm, because lions hunt in groups, not in pairs, and they’re pretty egalitarian when it comes to comes to choose which human to eat.

      I expect Potts paused only for effect, before hightailing it for the interior of the Range Rover. 😉 Lion prides, as you say, don’t really care who’s who.
