. . . And tigers, and bears, oh my!

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe is in theaters today. In addition to taking the prize for unnecessary lengthening of an already long title, this movie adaptation should remind us of C.S. Lewis's one true stroke of genius.

Jesus lions. Every children's book needs Jesus lions. My first children's book is going to have a whole army of them, along with a second army of Jesus lionesses to do all of the hunting necessary to feed the army of Jesus lions.

It's going to rock holy.

No, really, I actually love Lewis's Narnia books. The movie looks like it could be fun, but I've already filled my British magical adventure movie quota for this year, thank you very much.
