Cowardly lion jokes abound in the story of Moto, a lion at a New Delhi zoo who, for his tenth birthday was gifted by zookeepers blowing bubbles at him. His response is to leap up afraid, like a cat. The zookeepers then laugh and upload the video of the lion to Youtube, where millions of people laugh at this huge, fearsome animal scared of a tiny soap bubble. Like, LOL, right?
But who doesn't have an irrational reaction from time to time? Whether it's fear or unwarranted pride, or sexual arousal during that cartoon about fire safety, we all have responses that defy logic from time to time.
What mundane thing petrifies you? Or what tiny event brings you inexplicable joy?
