On the mane, the mane, remember your name*

A lion's worst nightmare (as revealed by the Riddled dream machine): not being allowed to chase Ann Althouse. The birds are mynahs, crossing stayed lions.

There is the consolation of knowing that they cannot fall and so cannot lose their pride.

* Title lynx.

I don't get what's stopping them from flapping their crosspieces and setting off in pursuit. They're MAGIC.

Also and too, I honest to god think lions can't fly.

How would you prove such a thing?

It's more off a negative thing.In the book Busytown by arguabley the foremost Lion expert of our times, Richard Scarry, the only Lion listed is a Doctor whilst Rudolf von Flugel, a fox, is listed as a pilot.

Mr. Frumble ... drives a pickle-shaped car and is prone to vehicular accidents.
Some would say that the Busy World of Richard Scarry was a formative experience on the Riddled worldview but I could not possibly comment.
