Do you realize how few returns there are for "gnu attack" or "wildebeest attack"?  Plenty for "wildebeest attacked by..."

An aside... when someone walks up to me and asks "what's new?", I have a bad habit of saying "it's an African antelope...."

At 5:49 in the video, the flying lioness seems surprised by the turn of events. Lions and crocodiles and cape buffalo, oh my.

That calf had to be in rough shape, but a cape buffalo is most certainly not something to be taken lightly.  A whole herd, even less.

I knew a guy who wanted to buy a new gnu, but the gnu herder looked at him and  said "No new gnu for you!"

Gnu (new)  - African antelope.
Gnu (ganu) - Unix-based computer operating system.
Gnumeric - a great little spreadsheet app.

Around here, "GNU" is pronounced a little more like "g'nu." :;):

Remember GNU = GNU's Not Unix.
