'Stand closer to the rhino' results in grave wound
before, South Africa seems to be a hot bed of places where you can go to get your picture taken with large dangerous animals. Note my intentional use of the word "dangerous" here. These animals are so-called because they are, in point of fact, capable of hurting, even killing you. Hence they are labelled, "dangerous."
Let's review what we know about the rhino: Large pointy horn on it's nose, bad eyesight, evil temper, small brain, weighs in at 2 tons...that's 4000 pounds, about what my Dodge 1500 pickup weighs. What about this says, "cuddly, wild, and, oh-I-so-want-to-have-my-picture-taken-with-this-thing creature"? Wait...let me answer that for you: Nothing.
Again, people...enjoy your vacation, but try to avoid dying.
I am indebted to Mike Elgan on Google+ for bringing this story to my attention. I hope he forgives me for totally stealing the above picture.
