"He roars like a lion and swims like a tiger."
Don't know why, but I thought it was hysterical when I read it. Maybe it was the context. Thanks to Barbara for this site, which totally made my evening. My faith in science is renewed because the lovely scientists create things like this seemingly just for fun and to amuse us. A friend of mine from high school lived next door to a scientist. He had bred a cabbit by mating a cat and a rabbit. No joke. It looked like a rabbit with a cat's head, and it would hop around and meow. I wouldn't believe it if I hadn't seen it. I have a cat who says "Yum yum yum" when she drinks, but as far as we can tell it's not the result of any cross-breeding. She's just crazy.
