Lioness in zoo kills man who invoked God

KIEV (Reuters) - A man shouting that God would keep him safe was mauled to death by a lioness in Kiev zoo after he crept into the animal's enclosure, a zoo official said on Monday.

"The man shouted 'God will save me, if he exists', lowered himself by a rope into the enclosure, took his shoes off and went up to the lions," the official said.

"A lioness went straight for him, knocked him down and severed his carotid artery."

Sorry about that, Ivan. I guess you hadn't heard that God has better things to do than saving your sorry ass.

Yeah, God's busy answering more important prayers, like all those made at the beginning of 2-A high school athletic events across the State of Texas.

I thought he was outsourcing that work to John the Baptist...
