On Tigers


Tigers are my favorite animals in the whole wide world, and the white ones are my extra favorite animals. (Is it possible to talk about one's favorite animal without sounding like a five-year-old?) I've been hearing some rumblings about tigers going extinct, which is just plain stupid. Pandas have been going extinct for like decades now, but tigers just whoosh in out of nowhere with a surprise extinction to beat them out? That is total crap. Also, what about those whales?

I've decided that I'm going to ask my parents to adopt a tiger cub in my name through a foundation called Save China's Tigers as my Christmas present this year. I don't even know if the foundation is legit yet or not, so I won't post a link, but if you have a few spare dollars and want to find your own tiger-related charity to donate to this season, I will love you forever. And maybe even kiss you, if you're pretty or if you smell good or if you quote Lord of the Rings in a low voice in my ear.

So go forth and save my favorite animal, if not for me then for the kids of the future who need to have tigers in the world in order to fully appreciate the greatness of Calvin and Hobbes.
