Did anyone else hear about the man who wants to fight a lion to boost Egypt's tourism?
There has been a huge negative reaction since the story did the rounds on Twitter, resulting in various petitions to the Egyptian government and calls to boycott Egyptian products if this goes ahead. The guy hasn't been granted a permit to fight the lion in front of the pyramids at Giza, as he wants to do.
This interview, posted online today, makes him come across as even more of a nutter. He's insisting that the fight will go ahead, despite the international reaction, and will be fought without weapons. He also says that the fight has a political message:
This is going to be absolutely EPIC!!!!!
LoL, dude is gonna ****ing die a death.
Sounds like this will be the mane attraction for Egyptian tourism in the coming weeks
Yeah, but due to taxes the government will see the lion's share of the benefit.
what's the world coming to when you can't find any Christian's willing to
get fed to fight a lion for the sake of entertainment?
Fantastic, hopefully it will be televised.
I would pay good money to see this guy and Charlie Sheen have a conversation, and then a fight.
I hope he fights the lion as it's gonna **** him up
what a gob****e... hope the gets the head eaten off him..
The guy sounds mentally ill. He needs some medical help, if you ask me.
The 'translation' is suspiciously colloquial in style - colloquial American specifically.
