Where Have All The Tigers Gone...

Long time passing,

Where have all the tigers gone,

Long time ago,

Where have all the tigers gone,

Butchered because of floppy Chinese men,

Oh when will they ever learn?

Oh when will they ever learn?


Tigers have been butchered in their tens of thousands as a traditional Chinese remedy for impotence. What a crying shame that such a magnificent beast has been pushed to the brink of extinction because some impotent man believes that 'Tiger penis soup' will restore the 'ying' to his 'yang'!! Please, please try Viagra instead!!


This awesome picture was painted by my friend Abby. For me, it sums up the plight of these mighty, regal beasts. We'll cry when they are extinct.. let's not get to that point.


P.S I'm not attacking Chinese people... just anybody who consumes any Tiger products.
