Lions and tacos and beers, oh my!

Okay, what the heck is in the water in Arizona? (Not that there is much water in Arizona.)

First a Scottsdale restaurant offers an Easter meal with an entire rabbit menu, then it does a Christmas dinner featuring reindeer. And now a Tucson joint is serving up an extreme taco. Yummy: Simmered Simba to go.

Boca Tacos y Tequila is the brainchild of Bryan Mazon, who sells a special taco on Wednesday. The extreme special next month? African lion tacos.

Although this choice particularly galls the politically correct locations, he's also done specials with python, alligator, elk, kangaroo, rattlesnake, oysters, turtle, duck and frog legs. Why are lions so much worse?

Mazon is taking prepaid orders for the lion loins; each taco will cost $8.75. No cowardly lion-eaters need apply.
