Slight threadjack but no, Inquisitor or however the fark you spell it: I'm not disabling my ad blocker and I'm not going to do some trick like opening porn mode to read your stupid paper. It's not my fault businesses don't know how to say "wares for sale!" without being total assholes about it.

Tiger King. shiat, that feels like years ago.

I heard about the tiger. And I heard the protesters are going out to rural areas and they drive in without their lights on and if you flash your headlights at them, they shoot you! It's a gang initiation! I heard it from the gal who does my highlights, the one whose cousin's friend brought a Chihuahua home from her Mexican vacation and it turned out to be a sewer rat!

I laughed at that way more than it deserves. Nice job.

... And the San Diego zoo. And the Chicago zoo. Was the rumor spreading anywhere else?

Oh, but what a wonderful way to add to the chaos and mayhem had it been true. Watching some protester rioter/looter being mauled by the big cat. And you know some fool would video it, and some other fool would want to get a selfie with the cat. Yep... would have been epic!!!

Odds are there is a tiger roaming Oakland, and most other large cities.  Big cats are exceedingly good at staying out of sight.  Just because the zoo has all of its tigers doesn't mean those are the only tigers in the city.

Chicago PD was getting trolled hard last night with claims that Lincoln Park Zoo was being looted.  Reports of a hippo in the street, kangaroos on lakeshore drive, etc.  Was pretty amusing to listen to.

No to worry if a tiger shows up at the protest. A tiger will eat about one person then they look for a quiet place to sleep and digest their dinner. You can tell if a tiger has just eaten because their eyes get bloodshot.
So, no worries, just stay in the middle of the protesters and away from the fat people.

The tiger is part of antifa

A tiger escaped the SF zoo years ago and killed a guy, but that was due to taunting, not protesting. Kid that got chewed deserved it. Taunting tigers is never a good idea.

With the shutdown, the local media is regularly showing video and pics of coyotes roaming around SF. Video of coyote crossing the GG bridge in ...3...2...

When I was a kid, a local zoo had a thing where you could pet a tiger and get pictures.  Full grown tiger, not a cub.  I was just a kid but I knew tigers eat meat and I was mostly made of meat so I wouldn't do it.  Now I know he was just a lazy old cat who liked the scratches and I could have had a picture of me petting a tiger.

Oops, I'm wrong.  It was lions escaping the from the Rochester zoo.  That's so much better.

Yeah, and the whole thing about "Looters are being sent to" [random mall in predominantly white suburb] to loot has some obvious implications that a certain segment of the population bought hook-line-and-sinker.

Since I already had you bookmarked as a racist piece of shiat, your insincere, disingenuous concern is noted.
