Hakuna Matada!

It's a story you've heard a hundred times before, but yesterday a 56-man was feeding the bengal tiger he keeps on the roof of his Mexico City building and, well, one thing led to another and, of course, the tiger ate him. [English version here. Note that there's some confusion whether it was the bengal tiger or his companion, the lion, who actually ate the guy.]

The tiger then died on its way to the zoo. We're not sure what "respiratory insufficiency" [insuficiencia respiratoria] means, but it sounds like someone forgot to punch air holes in the van.

Exactly what kind of food was he distributing in his food distribution business, I wonder.

Not bengal tiger food, apparently.
