Samson – the cartoon character

Posted by on 25th Mar, 2010 in Online Resources | 0 comments

Samson is a cartoon character in every sense. His exploits are extraordinary. He can rip lions apart, slay 1,000 men with a donkeys skull, lift a set of city gates and carry them for miles. Oh, and chase after whatever his eyes take a fancy to – mostly women who always caused him trouble. He’s comic and tragic. Larger than life and well, just like life.
