Two men took a long safari vacation in the African. One day, needing a rest, they removed their packs and leaned their rifles against a tree.
They were startled when a large, hungry-looking lion emerged from the jungle and began eyeing them with anticipation. Unfortunately, their rifles were too far away to do them any good. Then, one of them began to remove his shoes.
“Why are you doing that?” asked the other.
“Because I can run faster without them,” replied the first.
“I don’t care how fast you can run, you’ll never outrun a lion!” the second said.
The now-barefoot man explained, “I don’t have to outrun the lion. I just have to outrun you!”
