"and so the lion fell in love with the lamb"
if you are currently living in the 21st century, you would know where this quote was picked from
to those who don't, the quote above was taken from the movie twilight
a story about a forbidden love between a human schoolgirl and an immortal vampire
the lion is of course referring to edward cullen, vampire extraordinaire
and the lamb is the klutzy magnet-for-all-things-bad human, isabella swan
i know what the quote means, its another way of saying that the hunter fell in love with the hunted
but really, why "lambs"??
there can't be anything wrong with lions seeing how lions are supposedly the king of the jungle, hunter numero uno
so, it must be the lambs.
i don't have a problem with this, really, i'm sincerely being curious.
are there any lambs out there in Africa that we do not know of?
i mean, i haven't seen a sheepskin rug with a tag saying "made in Africa"
there must be a better reason to it other than "it sounds nice"
let's try amending this somewhat misleading quote by replacing lambs with other furry little mammals at the bottom of the food chain, preferably with its natural habitat somewhere in Africa, where lions are native
how about "and so the lion fell in love with the deer"?
"and so the lion fell in love with the wildebeast"?
not too catchy, i'd say
"and so the lion fell in love with the zebra"?
reminds me of Madagascar
"and so the lion fell in love with the hippopatamus"?
now THAT would be interesting to see
well, i'm out of animals
but seriously, think about it, lambs?
till next time.
will you look at that
the lion DID fall for the zebra
