Did you hear the one about the famous llama? Well if you haven't, you will soon, and the story we're talking about is no joke.
Earlier in the month, a group of drunk French teens passed a local circus in the town of Bordeaux and left with Serge the llama
, who they took for a joyride on the subway system before being spotted by an inspector. In the weeks since, Serge has become an international celebrity, and the town of Bordeaux has happily embraced his newfound fame.
On Sunday, Serge met the members of the Bordeaux Boxers ice hockey team, who gladly shared the spotlight with their furry supporter, even posing for a group photo. And judging from his stance, it seems Serge has been perfecting his red carpet pose, with head held high and one leg out in front of the other.
The visit with the Boxers actually marked Serge's second official outing
of the day. He also visited Stade Chaban-Delmas stadium ahead of hometown team FC Girondins de Bordeaux's match against the FC Nantes.
