London Zoo Denies Celebrity's Wish To Be Fed To Lions After Death

The London Zoo has reportedly rejected Ricky Gervais' wish to be fed to their lions after his death. The decision came after Gervais told Conan O'Brien he would like to "give something back" adding, "It would be good to be fed to lions at London Zoo. We eat animals and destroy habits and at least then I could give something back." Gervais also mused, "It would be amusing to see the faces of tourists when this fat, naked dead body is thrown out and as it lands some people go ‘is that the bloke from ‘The Office?'" Chief Operating Officer of ZSL London Zoo, Kathryn England, said, "I suspect Ricky may be a bit gristly for our lions." She added, "We are struggling financially because of lockdown so if anyone wants to ‘give something back' we welcome donations that will help us keep our lions fed on a more suitable diet."
