A 25-year-old Egyptian man says he’s the strongest man in the world and will fight a lion to help Egypt’s struggling tourism trade.
I don’t even know where to start with this one. Though if wants to to be believe he’s the strongest man in the world, I need him to Tweet me a picture of his torso.
Maybe he should fight Anthony Weiner first.
Al-Sayed al-Essawy says “If America, or any other country, had a man with the ability to combat the strongest creature on the planet, they would properly promote him and use his strength to their advantage.”
So they’ll give me a raise if I fight a lion? I mean, I could maybe kick a cat or something …
al-Essawy says he discovered his “incredible” strength at 13. and promised himself one day he’d fight a lion with his bare hands. When I was 13, I discovered Rush and promised myself one day I would totally, like, get a girl or something.
But that’s me – a weak American.
So, naturally, lots of environmentalists are angry, believing this nut went out and purchased a lion on the black market, or from Michael Jackson, or something, for $4,000. The government won’t sanction the fight.
al-Essawy doesn’t care – he’s still planning to do it because he wants to “send an important message.” Sounds like the message is to prove how fast a lion can kill an Egyptian guy.
