@Spin: Was it Howdah Doodah Time?

@ifly: No anchovies, please.

Much like the matador doesn’t need to do most of the work when fighting a bull.

But I know this: tigers are freaking dangerous! I mean, look at what tigers in captivity can do. Can you imagine them in the wild??

Forget the hard work
Killing a defenceless, beautiful animal
Beyond criminal
