Pitching a Netflix series?

If you ever wanted to have a good time...read about any of the man-eating tigers that have been recorded in the last 150 years. Most of them have body counts in the 200-300 range.

Carole Baskin, of Netflix's "Tiger King" fame, praised the off-duty deputy in an interview with CNN for his response when confronting the tiger.

"I was so impressed with the deputy that showed up on the scene because he did exactly the right thing, and he showed amazing restraint in not shooting that tiger," Baskin said.


Baskin continued, "The first thing you should do is feed it your husband's body."

One thing's for sure, there's gonna be a dead tiger at the end of this.

She's got a point. A handgun isn't going to stop a tiger. It would just piss it off. You'd need a pretty sizable rifle. Or something with a huge rate of fire.

Someone lured this tiger into their basement and they're hiding it.

"...he looked out the window and saw a tiger sitting in his front yard....Ramos cautiously went outside to get a closer look."

*facepalm*

And the guy who came to retrieve said tiger was already out on bond "for an unrelated murder charge" and they let him bond out again. Maybe 'don't associate with tigers' should be a standard bond condition for murder cases.

I must be the third. I also have the soundtrack album.

Owning a tiger is a violation of Houston law, a misdemeanor punishable with a maximum $500 fine, but it is legal under Texas state law with certain restrictions.

I'm pretty sure one of those restrictions is "Don't let it roam the streets unattended.".

And then they interview that Tiger King chick? Could they have made their story any more irrelevant?

Houston does not have basements. We would call that an underground pool here if we did. I am sure it is hiding, there is a ton of green space near West Houston.

Probably part of the three... unless more than one other person shows up in the thread.  :)

"(The police) saw my client go out in the yard and retrieve the tiger and they've assumed he's done a whole lot of different things that he necessarily has not done and not guilty of, just like they assumed that the tiger is his," Elliott argued. "It of course is not."

...aaaaaaand, of COURSE they went and got a soundbite from Carole Freakin' Baskin.
Just make sure you *never* ask her what happened to Don Lewis.

He's sitting on a toboggan eating a tuna fish sandwich waiting for snow.

Finally, Ted Cruz has a purpose.  Tie him to a tree and keep watch.

I just re-watched this two weeks ago! So many great scenes and quotes, from Iggy Pop to "Stupid farking white man".

So do I.  I was really into Neil Young when the movie came out and had the soundtrack before I even saw the movie.
