Lion; Polite; Animals; Humor
Is a lion still a lion if he wears a hat? And what about if he carries an umbrella? Readers follow this silly lion, once fierce, through a series of funny what-ifs, making the lion seem positively innocent and friendly. However, once he's come into your house, danced, sang, and sat down for lunch, he might remember he's a lion, and suddenly his smile turns sharp and scary! So if a lion is still a lion, no matter how it's dressed or how it's acting, you do not need to be polite, you do not need to invite him in, and you do not need to feed him lunch.
