Decline.

I think I already knew that, but this does drive the lesson home. So to speak.

Al Gored?

Yikes. I had no idea anyone was trying to set up a petting zoo for rhinos. Those things are still wild, right?

I would have said okay but you go first. Then I would have run in the opposite direction.

"Stand closer to the rhino for a better picture" or "personal safety." Is that what they mean by horns of a dilemma?

Have you ever seen a rhino up close? I've seen smaller cars.
Don't ever startle something with huge horns and poor vision. That's my motto.

"But when thou art bidden, go and sit down in the lowest room; that when he that bade thee cometh, he may say unto thee, Friend, stand closer to the Rhino." Luke 14:10


Quite preposterous.

Reminds me of when I was a wedding photographer. Some of those mothers-in-law can get testy.

I'd hate to be at that wildlife expert's next performance review. (Needs to work on customer safety will be at the top of the list)

And if called by a panther, don't anther.

If gored by a rhino, become a wino.

I should admit, I don't write a lot of poetry.

USA (Yellowstone) version is, "stand closer to that bison or elk," with similar results.

Loud,

You too? ::shivers::

Jim: you don't need to apologize. That was a worthy inspiration.

Rhi - NO!

She's from Johannesburg for heaven's sake, we have any number of Rhino parks on our doorstep. Any South African knows to respect the wildlife, especially those weighing more than a ton and equipped with a long sharp horn. It's like that old joke, what do you call a monkey with a sub-machine gun? Boss!

I've had bosses like that.
