We're All Very Impressed

From Ebert's Movie Answer Man column a few weeks ago:

Q. The animated feature "Madagascar" has two illogical scenes where the male lion gets kicked from the front between his back legs and doubles over like a man kicked in the testicles.

Problem: A male lion, like all cats, has his testicles located on his back side, and there is no way they could be kicked by standing in front of the lion, who is "rampant" on his hind legs. I suspect that you noticed this error, but were too politically correct, or lacked the cojones, to point this out in your review of the movie.

Good for you for knowing about lions. Did you know: they also don't talk. It's a cartoon. Don't be a shithead.

Ebert, ever the gentleman, accentuates the postive:

A. Just ignorance on my part, actually. This info could be a life-saver.
