The Big Game Hunter
So the big game hunter gets talked into taking both his wife AND her
mother along on one of his expeditions.
It does not go well. The mother-in-law is, if anything, harder to get
along with in the wilds than she was in the city. And to make matters
worse, she won’t even abide by the simple camp rules designed to keep
the safari safe.
One night after dinner, the hunter’s wife realizes her mother is
missing. Panicked, she rushes to her husband and begs him to
institute a search.
He sighs, and together they set out. But before they’ve gone far, they
hear throaty growling – and soon they come upon a small clearing in
which the mother-in-law stands, backed up against thick, seemingly
impenetrable jungle brush, and facing a huge male lion.
The wife whispers urgently, “What are we going to do?”
“Nothing whatever,” responds her husband. “The lion got himself into
this mess, now let him get himself out of it.”
