Awesome deletions abound! November 19, 2007 11:38 AM   Subscribe

Can I just say that, despite the gravity of the post itself (I thought it was interesting, anyway), I do find it absolutely brilliantly hysterical that a post about four starving tigers eating a fifth is deleted because... the post was "pretty thin". Heh.

A guy in LA tried to sell me a tiger tooth once. He said it would protect me from getting shot. I say, well, it didn't work for the tiger, did it.

DID IT?

There is a lion with a shark's head
and he's roaming through the jungle
He is searching for the gold
but he wants to be alone
There is a tiger with a blowjob
and he thinks that he's the best
He may think that now but I...
I need to know for sure

And now the lion's forcing movies, wishing teeth, holding nose
And the tiger is a blooster and he's tied to these big teeth
He sees a house and a boat and a car and a rock
He sees a house and a boat and a car and a rock
And he thinks that they are dumb but I...
I need to know for sure

And now the lion's playing drums
and the drums are made of dragons
and the dragons see the tiger
and the tiger turns pink
and the tiger runs a restaurant
and it is very successful
and the menu is delicious
and the restaurant
is made entirely of bees

The proposed solution to zoo's money problem was pretty creative though:

The center has continually bemoaned its lack of funds and earlier this year called for the legalization of the trade of tiger parts to boost its income

No, no; see, the Little Black Sambo story was set in India, not Africa, that's why there are tigers, you see. It's merely coincidental that the protagonist of the story is named "Little Black" Sambo. And that he seems to have very nappy hair in the original illustrations.

Not knowing that song, I imagined those words oddly crammed into Leonard Cohen's Suzanne. That is all.

Not knowing that song either, did a quick Google and voila! Metafilter comes up! For those curious about Dan Deacon and the Lion With a Shark's Head:
