Didn't know the mother tiger was pregnant? Don't they have comprehensive sex ed in Tacoma, or do they do this abstinence-only shit?

Well, YOU try getting close enough to a tiger to give her a pelvic exam.

I think once you get the tiger in the stirrups, it should be okay.

There's a joke about the tiger's father in there somewhere. I'm thinking a pun on "deadbeat tiger"/"Tiger Beat", but I'm just not quite able to put it together. Pretend I said something hilarious.

If the tiger's father says he isn't the tiger's father, he might be lion.

On the other hand, if the tiger's alleged father is a dancer, he might prefer to be in leopards.

Either way, if the father isn't being forthright, then he could well be a cheetah.

Seriously, fuck the New York Post.

It's already losing money hand over fist, and circulation is already down the tubes. If there's any justice in the world, the errors made this week will be the fatal blow. I give it six months.

@14 - It would help the process along if the people the Post falsely identified as suspects sued them for everything they're worth.
