A man walks into a bar.....

Actually, make that out of a bar.

The first two paragraphs of a NY Post article from today:

A leopard terrorized the Indian town of Karad Sunday, attacking six people, including one man who it pinned to the ground before being shot by a police officer, according to reports.

The leopard pounced on Hanumant Mane as he walked out of a bar. Officer Vikas Dhas then rushed up and shot the animal at close range, the Mumbai Mirror reported.

Imagine the scene.  You've just gone to your local bar to relax and have a couple of beers. Now, with the pleasant buzz that alcohol brings, you step out out into the sunlight and.....a snarling leopard jumps on you.

That's gotta be a little bit of a buzz-killer.

It's hard to tell from the picture which part of the man the leopard grabbed onto, or whether the blood is from him or the leopard.

Either way, it's one more good argument against frequenting bars.

And yes, it's too bad for the leopard, but the policeman really had no choice.

John, I heard from the mainstream press, so it must be true, that the leopard's attack was part of a politically-motivated conspiracy resulting from over-heated political rhetoric.

Nah. I could never believe that the mainstream press would be so cynical and dishonest as to exploit a tragic situation for political gain.

Anyway, it's pretty clear that the leopard WAS a Tea Partier.
