    I need a word to refer to well-off foolish white liberals (for only a liberal thinks that the kitty is friendly and will do no harm).

    Softheads. I shall call them softheads.

    “Does your cheetah bite?”
    “OW! WTF! You said it didn’t bite.”
    “That’s not my cheetah.”

    Apparently, what could go wrong is that the cheetahs get mildly annoyed and brusquely shoo you away without inflicting any bodily harm whatsoever — if that video is any guide. I mean, seeing as how a cheetah can chase down and kill an impala, and seeing as how there was a mother holding a baby in the video … I’m thinking that the cheetahs could have done some physical harm, had they wanted to

    Any male wearing skinny jeans deserves to be eaten by a cheetah.

    “I need a word to refer to well-off foolish white liberals (for only a liberal thinks that the kitty is friendly and will do no harm).”

    Yellowstoners? (After the national park, where such behavior is common—just substitute bears for cats.

    On the big cat scale, cheetahs are tolerant of humans. In fact, some cheetah kittens have been domesticated enough to make good housepets and “hunting dogs.” (Assuming you have a very big backyard.)

    But wild cheetahs have no real reason to feel friendly toward random humans, even if they respect park rangers a bit.

    Also, why did the idiots who were smart enough to stay inside the car, not warn the idiots who got out of the car?

    “Das ist nicht mein cheetah.”

    You’re most assuredly familiar with the term “natural selection”……sometimes the process is faster.

    That’s what I thought Callmelennie. They could have done so much more.

  • Aaron Garzia May 22, 2018, 9:54 PM

    Ah, another example of super smrat sophisticated Euroweenies, just getting closer to their animal brothers and sisters… Think wild animals are scary? Wait till they really get to know their new muslim “immigrant” neighbors.

    “just substitute bears for cats.” Yellowstone. Just substitute buffalo for cats. Have you ever looked at a wild buffalo? They are not quite a big as an elephant but they are way larger than your average cattle. And people walk right up to them and snap pix. Darwin Award winners.

    The pathetic beta males all run back to the car and leave the woman and child to fend for themselves against the pack. Scum.

    Frankly, CW, if they are stupid enough to cavort with wild assed animals I’d abandon them too.

    The only way I’d drive through one of them places is the same way I’d drive down MLK Blvd., with a powerful hawgleg laying on the seat next to me.

    A big part of staying alive is recognizing danger.

    Excellent point Ghostsniper. Here’s an alternate headline:

    Friends Exit Cars to Photograph Free-Roaming Mustangs in NW Colorado. Nothing Goes Wrong.


    Eyes in front: Predator

    Eyes on the side: Prey

    A big part of staying out of trouble is knowing the difference.

    Just when you’re thinking you’re the 2-legged alpha-predator…….
