P: Why am I watching this? This is upsetting.
J: Because it's the best thing ever
P: I can't believe I'm watching lions and crocodiles play tug of war over a live buffalo.
P: [cracks up]
P: Now, the video's not really clear enough but I imagine the look on the lions' faces must be like, "ah, what NOW - ohshitohshit."
J: You know, I never thought buffalo cared about each other.
P: Yeah me neither. But that was a baby they took down right? Maybe it was a particularly cute buffalo child.
J: Cute buffalo? They all look the same to me.
P: That's just racist
P: I wonder what the buffalo signal is. Like, help, my child is being eaten by lions! in buffalo. I feel like it might be important for when I go to Africa.
P: I love how for like a full minute, the buffalo are surrounding the lions, who are just lying there casually, all like, "oohhh hey you guys, what's up? This? This is - nah, this is nothing.. it's, uh, just.. I just found this lying here."
P: Oh there we go. Buffalo LYNCHING MOB! Okay you're right this is pretty awesome.
J: Yeah man. It's pretty awesome. 8 minutes of pure awesome. I'm rewatching it.
P: The lions look pretty chill given the numbers. And the baby buffalo does not look well man.
J: I don't know, I'd be pretty scared if I were the lion because, well, there were also crocs in the river. Crocs the animal, not the fake shoe.
P: Yah but they're just lying there. I mean after the first of my party got summarily flung in the air like that, I would be getting the fuck out. Cats and their pride. Pride of lions! Oh, I get it.Permalink
