The Mugger Or the Tiger?

Hatched by Dafydd

According to Fox News, one of a pair of muggers who robbed a couple at knifepoint in South Africa fled the scene... and thought to elude the police by darting into a zoo. He pondered his position with a great grinding of gears, then decided to hide where nobody would ever think to look for him: in the tigers' cage.

He was right. Nobody did.

His mauled body was discovered Sunday by a visitor to the zoo in Bloemfontein, in central Southern Africa, prompting initial confusion as to how the man ended up in the enclosure....

"What exactly happened we don't know [I think I could hazard a guess. -- the Mgt.] and we won't ever know because the only person who could tell us is dead," police spokeswoman Else Gerber said.

So what could prompt a person to pick such a ludicrous place to hide out?

[Gerber] said there was an empty can of beer near the corpse and that the autopsy would reveal whether the man was intoxicated at the time.

Ah yes, of course. We had a couple of beers and the gun went off. I can't remember anything that happened that night. Gee, I don't know... it seemed like a good idea at the time.

Now would be an excellent time to pop Brad Paisley's CD Time Well Wasted into the player and crank up cut number two, "Alcohol."

You had some of the best times
You'll never remember with me,
Al Cohol!

Zoos should be banned!!! This one mugger was clearly an Unfortunate, and taken advantage of!!! The State should pay dearly, in my humble opinion. Hurricanes are not that big when compared to Flesh Eaters, and clearly, Karl Rove tricked this unfortunate person into a Tiger’s cage!!! Karl deserves some Prison time for such an act of brutality!!!!!!!

Which is the more stupid place to hide from police, the tiger's cage at the zoo, or an electrical substation in Paris?
