World's Toughest Grandpa

You think you're tough? You think you're bad-axe? Well, you're nothing compared to Daniel M’Mburugu in Kenya. He was attacked by a wild leopard. He had no weapons of any kind. So he reached into the animal's open mouth and ripped out its tongue! He killed it with his bare hands! I didn't even know you could kill a leopard by ripping out its tongue. Maybe it choked to death on its own blood. Even if it didn't kill the leopard, reaching into its mouth alone gives him cajones of titanium. And if that doesn't make you feel small, think about this; he was seventy-three. I don't know about you, but that makes Arnold Schwarzenegger and that guy who cut his own arm off sound like little girls. I'll bet that guy was splitting logs with his eyebrows in his twenties. How'd you like to be that kid's grandson at Show-and-Tell? "And this is the tongue my grandpa tore out of a leopard's mouth...with his bare hands...and killed it!"

Dear Sir,

Rip out its tongue? Wish I'd thought of that.

Eyebrows. Heehee. Man how brave would you have to be to try and fight a leopard much less kill it. poignant letter too. Funny and it makes you think.
