When things are not what they seem, read between the lions.

I don't think we really teach vocabulary or spelling anymore.

"What do they got that I ain't got?"

...Huh?

The guy in the 911 call says "mange," so there is no spelling mistake.

JAL said...

But on second read and listen, I bet he did mean "mane."

"...about the size of a labrador retreiver ..."

Got that right!


Saw a fluffy German Shepherd shaved like this years ago and thought it was cool.

Back when people answered other people's phones, you could write out a message to return the call of Mr. Harry Lyons and use the phone number for the zoo.

f it had the mange and everything, it could have been a horse.

Horse, lion, what's the diff?

The dog-cat is so cute and bouncy. Much too bouncy to be a real lion.

Oh, Ann, of course I know that you didn't make the vocabulary error. It was immediately obvious that it was the caller.
