Kind of like the Chicago investment banker wasn't kidnapped, he just wanted a few days off from his wife..
2004-02-20 02:05:29 PM  
Bad kitty.
2004-02-20 02:06:28 PM  
Must find Roy!
2004-02-20 02:06:32 PM  
BS. He wanted a piece of Roy, realized he was in China, then got hungry.

/can I get upgraded to first class?
2004-02-20 02:07:17 PM  
Roy Horn breaths a heavy sigh of relief.

Hey! I actually RTFA. Just wanted to state that.

It's the Eye of the Tiger,
It's the thrill of the fight,
Rising up to the challenge of our rival,
And the last known survivor
Stalks his prey in the night,
And he's watching us all
With the Eye of the Tiger
2004-02-20 02:09:51 PM  

by 4 seconds.
2004-02-20 02:09:56 PM  
They better catch it soon. If that tiger eats any chinese, it's just gonna be hungry again in an hour.
2004-02-20 02:10:08 PM  
Of course he came back.
Free lunch
2004-02-20 02:10:27 PM  
The damn tiger was in got sick of eating rice and thin Chinese people...

**Send tiger to U.S., let it die of obesity**

***GOT Nothin'***
2004-02-20 02:10:57 PM  
Yeah, previewing is for chumps.
2004-02-20 02:11:06 PM  
Thanks, submitter, for getting a bad Huey Lewis & the News song stuck in my head.
"All I want is a COUPLE DAYS OFF!"
/i know, "bad Huey Lewis & the News song" is redundant
2004-02-20 02:11:35 PM  
Anyone else think its weird the focus of the story was that the tiger came back, not on that it had managed to escape and maul a man?
2004-02-20 02:11:51 PM  
In the cat's defense, that guy outside the fence was singing the Meow Mix tune.....

"Meow, meow, meow,meow. Meow,meow,meow,meow. Meow,meow,meow,meow,meow,meow,meow,meow!"

Now, get that farkin' tune out of your head!

2004-02-20 02:12:19 PM  
You lay off Huey and the News.
2004-02-20 02:12:25 PM  
When is Southwest going to use this tiger in one its "Want to Get Away?" commercials?
2004-02-20 02:12:53 PM  
Your boss:

you bastard. evil bastard.
2004-02-20 02:12:59 PM  
dinosaur1972 just read mryoop789 post and it will all be taken care of.
2004-02-20 02:13:14 PM  
Yeah, lay off Huey! Don't you know it's hip to be square?

2004-02-20 02:14:55 PM  
Varg Vikernes?

/10 bucks to whoever gets the reference without Googling
2004-02-20 02:15:10 PM  
In the tiger's defense, the worker was bent over while collecting pine nuts, thus exposing his plumber crack and tiger striped undies.
2004-02-20 02:16:14 PM  
Nope...he went back home because he sucking at the Buick open
2004-02-20 02:16:23 PM  
He and Siegfried just got a hotel room at a little bed and breakfast for the weekend, it was no big thing. Typical teenage tiger rebellion.
2004-02-20 02:17:58 PM  
SoftBoiledLife: Don't you mean the siberian tiger had a weekend rendezvous with Tony the Tiger??
2004-02-20 02:18:48 PM  

"damn you JohnBigBootay!!!!"

If it makes you feel any better, posting first in this thread will probably be my most significant accomplishment of the day.

/usually not first
2004-02-20 02:19:24 PM  
Wow, too many Huey Lewis puns ... I think I want a new drug.
2004-02-20 02:20:31 PM  
'Jumped the Park?' Is this anything like jumping the shark?

Hope they didn't feed it any Thai chickens.
2004-02-20 02:21:11 PM  
Varg Vikernes:
In October 2003 he attempted to escape from jail. After hijacking a car and apparently driving around with no clear plan he was apprehended by the police.

Varg rocks!!!!
2004-02-20 02:21:41 PM  
And now, the sound of a Siberian tiger going to the chemist to get something for the weekend!
2004-02-20 02:22:20 PM  
Weird. I posted first in this thread and said "First?" - then J.Garcia'sRightMiddleFinger said "damn you johnbigbootay"- I notice now that both posts have been deleted. My most significant accomplishment of the day has been nullified by Winston Smith...
2004-02-20 02:22:48 PM  
"Jump the Park"???? that's too funny, but I don't know why.

Will this be the standard label for anyone/anything escaping??? only time will tell. I vote yes!
2004-02-20 02:23:32 PM  
I said No Googling!

Escaping is what Tiggers do best!!
2004-02-20 02:27:08 PM  
Morrigan Sedai

Come on, no one was going to get it.

/and he does in fact rock
2004-02-20 02:29:25 PM  
I don't think Roy Horn can take a huge sigh of relief... His throat is still a tad sore.
2004-02-20 02:32:02 PM  
Sounds like a typical cat. "I'm gonna do this! No, wait, I changed my mind. Damn, I need a nap."
2004-02-20 02:32:07 PM  
fruitbowl - you think? Varg was a musician who went in jail for the premeditated murder of a rival musician, and he also happens to have nazi beliefs. In fact, he used to make metal music, but stopped because metal originated from blues, which is "n*gger music" (not sure if the word is allowed here, not gonna risk a filter). So while in prison, he still had access to recording equipment, but he made atmospheric/ambient keyboard music instead of the "n*gger music".

Recently he "escaped" during his "break" from prison (that's Norway for you...), but got caught later the same day.

So, does he still rock? ;)
2004-02-20 02:32:08 PM  

Read the FarQ. Your post will probably show up as boobies in twelve hours.

/I win
2004-02-20 02:34:04 PM  
The tiger jumped the park's four-metre high fence with the aid of a pine tree

Sounds like the Ents are stirring up trouble...
2004-02-20 02:37:42 PM  
Ah, you are a crafty devil J.Garcia'sRightMiddleFinger. I read the Farq, but it was a long time ago. I shall not risk bannination by attempting to be first again. Nor shall I threadjack...

They should let the tiger go.

/like 20 somethingth
2004-02-20 02:40:32 PM  
Yin said park managers launched a search, putting out cattle and sheep as bait, but failed to find the beast.

sounds like they should have chained zoo officials around the city as bait. would have worked better.

He, uh, went that way!
2004-02-20 02:46:22 PM  
What the fark is a pine nut?

A pine cone?

I live in Georgia, where there are pine trees everywhere, and I have no clue what a pine nut is or why you would want to pick them.
2004-02-20 02:47:27 PM  
jessie they're small seed things that come from certain evergreens (would have to look it up). You can buy them...they taste pretty good, often used in cooking.
2004-02-20 03:00:08 PM  
Pine Nut = Pignoli nuts

Jessie: If you've eaten pesto, you've eaten pine nuts.
2004-02-20 03:07:45 PM  
Pine nuts? Crave nutsack?
2004-02-20 03:18:43 PM  
so he went to the maul & back?

big deal.
2004-02-20 03:33:39 PM  
"Eye of the Tiger" is a Loverboy song, not Huey Lewis and the News. Pshhaw... It was part of one of the Rocky soundtracks (2 or 3?)

/Rocked out to it in second grade, with my feather roach clips (which I didn't were roach clips until years later)
2004-02-20 03:44:21 PM  
The Siberian tiger is one of the world's rarest mammals. Fewer than 400 are believed to survive in the wild, about 20 of them in China and the rest in Russia.

So, what, I guess now that it's mauled human flesh, it must be killed. Click, 399
