Yeah, let's just figure Mike didn't say that. Oh, by the way:
A man is riding by the zoo when he sees a little girl leaning into the lion's cage. Suddenly, the lion grabs her by the cuff of her jacket and tries to pull her inside, under the eyes of her screaming parents. The man jumps off his bike, runs to the cage and hits the lion square on the nose with a powerful punch. Whimpering from the pain the lion jumps back letting go of the girl, and the man brings her to her terrified parents, who thank him endlessly.
A reporter has seen the whole scene, and addressing the man, says: "Sir, this was the most gallant and brave thing I have ever seen a man do in my whole life." The man replies: "Why, it was nothing, really, the lion was behind bars. I just saw this little kid in danger, and acted as I felt right."
"Well, I'll make sure this won't go unnoticed. I'm a journalist, you know, and tomorrow's papers will have this on the first page. What do you do for a living?"
"I'm a Deputy,â€ť was the man's response.
The following morning the man buys the paper to see if it indeed would bring news of his actions, and reads, on first page: "Policeman assaults African immigrant and steals his lunch."
