Bring On the Parodies!

If you're a reader of Cute Overload, or if you've been on the receiving end of my raving personal email demanding you watch this video and daring you not to sob like a baby, then the story of Christian the Lion is not unfamiliar to you. This video has seen a lot of play, but for anyone who hasn't seen it, here it is.

And for skeptics, it's a true story.

Now, I was okay with moving on with my life and keeping the sweet memory of a lovable lion in my heart, until I saw this on Neatorama yesterday, and again I was in tears, only this time they were tears of laughter. This is just priceless. And now I want to go to the Redwoods.

Humble apologies for making you listen to that terrible song twice in a row, but it is totally necessary to pull off the spoof.

wow, I'd just heard about the lion story yesterday and now I find it on your blog ^.^ The parody is awesome.
And some people think animals don't recognize people... ^.^

Sometimes I think animals treat people the way they deserve to be treated. Those who believe animals have no emotions or intelligence get what they give.
