The Lion Tamer

 A circus owner was looking for a new lion tamer, and two people showed up to apply for the gig.  One was an older man, probably about 70.  The other was a gorgeous blonde in her early 20s.

 The circus owner told them, “This lion is ferocious.”  “He ate my last lion tamer, so you better be good.”  And he gave each applicant a chair, a whip, and a gun.

 The girl volunteered to go first.  Ignoring the chair, whip, and gun, she walked right into the lion's cage.  When the lion started to roar and came towards her, she opened her coat, and revealed her beautiful, naked body.

 The lion stopped dead in his tracks, crawled over to the woman, and began licking her feet.  The lion continued to lick her whole body for several minutes, before he stopped and stretched out beside her.

 The circus owner was in shock.  He said to the old man, "I've never seen anything like that before in my life.”  “Do you think you can top it?"

 The old man thought for a second, and then said, "Sure, just get that lion out of there first."

 Careful with that joke…it’s an antique.
