I'm trying to stop "lion" like I'm Mumm-Ra
Once again, old anime reference: In the 1980s cartoon show Thundercats, Mumm-Ra was Lion-O’s antagonist. Actually a triple entendre:
- “Lyin'” — from the next line,
- “Lion” — as ties in with Lion-O of Thundercats, and a reference to Mum-Ra’s attempts to stop Lion-O,
- “Lying” — as in “to lie down”; Mum-Ra spends most of his days lying in a sarcophagus, only going after “Lion”-O when granted power by some evil cartoon demon-god… things.
