Paseo Is Passe! Tigers Roar In Celebration!

This summer, I accidentally bought some paper towels that were soaked with the blood of tigers.

OK, not literally soaked.  Just metaphorically.  You can read my previous posts about it here, but basically a company was chopping down the forest that tigers in Indonesia lived in just so people in the United States could mop up spills and wipe their asses (they also made toilet paper; don't worry, I don't use paper towels to clean my bottom after defecation).  Recently, the World Wildlife Fund (or WWF, as they like to be called now, though that name still makes me think of Hulk Hogan putting "Rowdy" Roddy Piper in a headlock) noted that the brand name of the company, Paseo, was discontinued.  Now, the company might just use another name for their products and pop up again on store shelves, but let's enjoy the company doing the right thing for the moment and hope that we and the tigers can coexist happily somehow from now on.

We can always recycle paper, but it's harder to recycle tigers.

For one thing, they keep chewing their way out of the paper bags.

All kidding aside, once the tigers are gone, they're not coming back.  And though we may never want to be neighbors with a tiger, I don't think we want to live in a world without tigers at all.
