I heard about this on the Ricky Gervais Show, but I had to find it for myself. This is from BBC World News. It's not funny, but when you hear Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant talk about it, it kind of is.
UPDATE: Aw, man. Seems that the story is fake. I knew it was too good to be true. The page does have a good discussion about who would actually win in this match, midgets or lions. I put my money on the lions everytime.
