Not since Johnny Weissmuller scampered around the forest as Tarzan have we been so excitable about a man, a cheetah and the chest bashing wails of ‘AaaaAAAaaaaaahhh’, so when we spied this fellow-me-lad over the shoulder of a sweaty lump in man-mades on the tube train this morn, we got excitable. As in fanny tinglingly excitable.
Said chap is Olivier Houalet, a Tarzan type who reared (hee, ‘rear’) some baby cheetahs on his own when their mumsy was killed Bambi stylee. Oh boo. The good news is he did such a good job the baggage, sorry, cheetahs have now left home and returned to the wild where they belong.
It’s all very squish squish and if you’re that way inclined then watch Cheetah Man on Five at 8pm. Yes, that’s ‘Cheetah Man’. Five… never the most imaginative of channels.
Personally we’ll be watching fat people wet-wee themselves over the accomplishment of losing 1lb on Channel 4’s Supersize vs Superskinny, but that’s just us. More pics of Olivier, who is of French if you didn’t realise by le nom, past le jump…
