A little girl at the zoo somehow got too close to the bars on the lion's cage and he grabbed her dress and was trying to pull her into his cage while her parents watched helplessly. A Harley rider cruising by saw what was happening and stopped immediately and ran over to the cage and through the bars, punched the lion hard right on his nose. The shocked lion released his hold on the little girls dress and the biker took her back to her parents who couldn't stop thanking him. A reporter had seen the whole thing and told him that his brave deed would not go unnoticed, that she would have his courageous act on the front page of the morning paper. She asked him some background questions, like what is your occupation and political affiliation? He replied, I'm a Marine and a staunch Republican.

The next morning he checked the morning paper to see if the story was in it, and saw the headline below.......................




"U.S. MARINE ASSAULTS AFRICAN IMMIGRANT AND STEALS HIS LUNCH!"
