Joke of the day

The Chief Rabbi, Sir Jonathan Sacks, was on Radio Four this morning talking about the concept of utopia and whether the lion will ever lie down with the lamb (ok, so this was surprising, coming from him as Isaiah mentions the wolf dwelling with the lamb and the calf with the lion, but never mind). He said, "There was only one zoo where a lion shared a cage with a lamb. A visitor asked the zoo keeper how he managed that and the keeper replied, 'Easy! I just get a new lamb everyday.' "

The wolf will live with the lamb, the leopard will lie down with the goat, the calf and the lion and the yearling together; and a little child will lead them. The cow will feed with the bear, their young will lie down together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox. —Isaiah 11:6–7

That yearling would have a bit of a problem if it was a French lion...
