A big-game hunter went on safari with his wife and mother-in-law. One night, after a long day's trek, deep in the jungle, his wife awoke with a start. Searching the camp she found her mother gone... Rushing to her husband, she insisted they immediately go out and search for her dear mother. Reluctantly, the hunter shouldered his carbine, took a swig of brandy, and led the way into the bush to look for her. In a clearing not far from the camp, they came upon a chilling sight: the mother-in-law was backed up against a thick, impenetrable bush, and a large lion stood facing her. . . .The wife cried, "Darling, what are we going to do?" "Be still..." said the hunter husband. "That lion got himself into this mess, let him get himself out of it."
