Roar. I am a lion.

Is it just me? Or is there something really compelling about trying and failing so epically?

Story goes that, in 1731, King Frederick I of Sweden received a lion skin as a gift from the Bey of Algiers. The taxidermist tasked with mounting it had never seen a lion in real life, and only had a vague idea of what one was supposed to look like.

But, man. He tried. Boy howdy did he try.
