i just made a flippant bet that you could probably buy a lion online within nine hours.

now what do i do? i need to start somewhere. anyone know any dodgy game keepers?

you could dodge the bet by pretending you meant some other meaning of lion.

As in the Toyota -> Toy-Yoda prize story

unfortunately it has to be a lion.

we're wondering how difficult it would be to create a motorbike wall of death show with a lion in a sidecar.

we've gone into the insurance and health and safety side of things, bypassed the animal rights thing and we're going straight into how hard it is to buy a lion.

i said we could probably get one on the internet by tonight.

i reckon you might be able to rent one, but not buy outright

a rental lion might be interesting. maybe one of those animal acting film companies.

Think you'll need to bring your experienced keeper along. If you have one of those I reckon it'd be quite easy to get one on the internet.

I reckon you could find an experienced keeper on the internet :lol:

we're making enquiries in the phillapines now. not sure how to get the lion into the uk though.

I don't think protein should actually provide all the collateral requirements, he should just prove that a lion was available for grabs withing midnight, "had" they alaso available the keeper, and whatnot.

"i just made a flippant bet that you could probably buy a lion online within nine hours."
"i said we could probably get one on the internet by tonight."

also, you don't need to have it physically delivered in the UK wihtin the deadline
You just need to prove that you "could" have finalised a purchase, and you'd have won the bet
