Lion Rare, Hold the Fries

by

Oh man. Citing a questionable link to the World Cup, one American
restaurant has started serving lion burgers. They cost 21 bucks, with chips
and corn. The owner has gotten angry emails and bomb threats but doesn't
know why seeing as how lions are only "threatened" and not "endangered."
The kicker: Guess what state the restaurant is in. Oh, go on, guess.  

"We thought that since the World
Cup
was in Africa (that) the lion burger might be interesting for some of
our
more adventurous customers." - restaurant owner Cameron Selogie
