The tigers indicated they don’t eat Chinese because an hour later they’re hungry again.

Talk about really depressing — you try to kill yourself by letting tigers eat you and even they don’t want you.

Given a choice between someone writing a book and someone reading a book, the tigers will always go for the reader.

The tiger was probably full from eating dissedents.

More commonly spelled as Szechuan. The guy was just too spicy. Maybe if he was Cantonese they would have eaten him.

I have it on good authority that if you drink a bottle of Vodka then kick the tiger several times there is a very good chance the tiger will oblige you.

Maybe the guy is a “Progressive” and left a bad taste in the Tiger’s mouth.

He should have signed up for the voluntary organ donation program. I’m sure Chinese officials could make use his “parts.” That would have been one less for the courts to railroad!
