    Here are the terms of the fight:   * Fight takes place between 1 full-grown, male African lion and 40 midgets   * The midgets are unarmed (no guns, baseball bats, tasers, etc.)   * The fight takes place in a closed arena (a racquetball court for example)   * Fight is over when either a) the lion is dead, or b) all 40 midgets are dead or unable to fight back (severely wounded)   * Lion is highly agitated, midgets know there's no way out until the lion is dead (they have to fight)   * The midgets are not specially trained to fight (not like the Cambodian fighting ones in the article)
    even if the little people were trained, I don't think 40 people without any weapons can kill a lion. give them pocket knives or night sticks I would go with the little people.

    i think if they sacrificed one of their own and made rudimentary knives and poking sticks out of his bones, they might have a chance.

    There is no way a lion could beat 40 midgets. There's also no way all of the midgets would make it out alive. The first few waves would get killed or maimed, but a lion can't cover all its sides at one time. The midgets would just have to swarm and smother the lion, then wait it out. How long could a lion live with 30-40 living sandbags piled on top of it?

    I don't think there is anyway anynumber a midgets could kill a lion without any weapons. A lion is natrually very well armed and strong as hell, what are all the little guys gonna hurt a lion with? A lion could easily shake off a large number of little people and then have his pick of them.

    Suppose the tykes were able to take out the lions vision, the lion still would have little worry about as far as getting harmed by the little ones.

    Also note: I'm not sure if some of you clicked the links, there is a story attached to this question, a very funny story.

    I'm with you, Eric. I'm even willing to put 2 to one on the lions. I have $100 bucks to put down, if anybody wants to get this show on the road and find some midgets and a lion, I'll bet on the lion sight unseen.

    Can we have some monkey knife fights for a warmup? We should probably take this to 'International Waters' like the Simpsons did.
