Scare your friends when you have a party 😜

Oh no @SILVIA … It was a lionpig :lion: :boar:

The thing made it to the news here obviously as well…

I just could not believe how similar they look, its uncanny. Does this mean I actually saw a lion sprinting across a nearby field in Normandy, a few years ago and it wasn’t a Sanglier as I thought ? Its a funny old world.

I still get these mixed up, we have lots of hippos in France :thinking:

One summer my husband and I were out in the woods at a high vantage point with binoculars just to see what we could see and a large badger with assorted little badgers walked across the trail 100 feet or so in front of us. Not quite a wolverine, but they are mean if cornered.

No such here luckily, but I heard that badgers can be a bit nasty.

We usually only have the occasional “bear spotted downtown” warning here, something like once per summer or so - and then it’s in fact a bear and not a boar :bear:

Still, I’d rather encounter a bear in the woods (as long as the bear doesn’t have cubs) than a wolverine :slightly_smiling_face:

:thinking: What do you think, would Silvia have a holiday job as head of the German police? :rofl:

What surprises me the most is that they still say “maybe not” here and in the east because Stevie Wonder can still say when he zooms in that it’s not a lion and sees those piggies standing there :woozy_face:

Now I start being confused, they put all those resources and effort to hunt a boar, mistaking it for a lion?! :joy:

Well…this is actually very funny!

And that song brings back memories :smile: :sunglasses:,I “sang”(/shout) that a lot in the discotheques in Italy (here I hardly ever went to a discotheque), while the music is on my wife also half joins in with the lyrics …eins zwei polizei…and shouts “that was a long time ago”,
you still often hear here (I don’t say that…only think :smile:) eins zwei when cops walk by … thanks :smile: :sunglasses:

Hi Nicole,
I just read your word liondog again, and I had to looked it up (I thought of a made-up word :upside_down_face:)… there is a very good chance that I am now typing something that makes a (bigger) fool of myself… the first picture is a dog with a wig, that was actually the joke … and I also expected something like that to happen in Germany in one way or another…did you know those dog wigs?..I just had to ask
Because the first time when I saw this joke incorporated into a much better joke (unfortunately I was in very exceptional time pressure) I couldn’t stop laugh and that this really existed and people bought this…
for example:
dog wig

Greetings…

I think, I have seen something like this before, yes :slightly_smiling_face: Amazing, how much attention they paid to detail, including lion ears and tailtip :lion:

Now there will surely be a new market for people wanting to dress up their minipigs as lions. Excitement guaranteed :boar:

Trento-Levico Terme

For almost 40 years (not in the disco the first years…and your father was right :blush:) …2 small discos in the town of Levico where Sisy’s summer palace was located where we had our privately rented house 100 to 300 meters from (changed a few times) …and a big one in Pergine valsugana and a few times in an exclusive disco in Milan …
But the best times spent at the lake lago di Levico :sunglasses:
Greetings from a rainy and chill (16.1c) Holland and have all a nice and sort of cool sunday :sunglasses:

Anyone who remembers Wild Boyz (Steve O/Joe Rogan/Jackass)?
@SILVIA Be happy, that there are only wild boars under your balcony :blush:

No :slightly_smiling_face: Boars are carnivores though… So, in case @SILVIA has prosciutto-hams dangling from her balcony, it will attract a horde of hungry piggies :pig2:

Ach ja, thinking about it, I am happy that I was only attacked by a flock of hungry seagulls at the festival in Helsinki some weeks ago. An invasion of angry boars would have been something else :boar:

We should call this area of Just Chatting ‘Continental Corner’ :rofl:
It seems the silly season has arrived and all my European friends have packed in their tedious practicing to go on safari…
Weiter so… :wink:

Just wait and see, what will happen when a horde of lionpigs will make their way across the sea to you :laughing: :grinning: :laughing:

Some typical “Sommerloch”-story. I remember, when I was still living in Germany many years ago, there was similar excitement when someone had spotted a crocodile in a lake… And then there was “Bruno der Problembär” (Bruno was actually real however)…

I need a Safari Guitar! Still unsure about the design. Zebra or leo pattern?

I can tell you…Brian writes or performs a new, very special song, the “Lionpig Blues” :slightly_smiling_face:

I live in the region where Bruno was seen several times and killed some sheep. Exactly, where I’m hiking with our dog regularly. That was a VERY special feeling…
Don’t forget the snapping turtle and all those wolves…
I’m going slightly mad… :joy:
Back to my obligations!
