More News out of Baton Rouge...

Turns out Mike the Tiger is really “Michelle the Tiger”

The LSU faithful were shocked this morning when they found hidden under “Mike the Tiger”, cuddled under the stone ledge in the back of the habitat three new baby Bengal Tigers. Mike spent several weeks with a specialized tiger veterinarian last fall in Montana trying to address some psychological and weight gain problems Mike seemed to be having. He spent time with other tigers to try to address his social problems. It turns out, Mike was really all along a female tiger, and apparently Mike and the other cats apparently went unsupervised for some time, and nature took over. The baby Bengals are being cared for by Mike, now referred to as “Michelle”. Plans are being made to have a sex change operation performed on “Michelle” to get Mike back……….

The report continues to say “we thought Mike was just putting on weight, with his lack of activity brought on by the colder than normal winter, but no one figured this.


  1. It usually makes me really nervous when something is titled, "News out of Baton Rouge," especially with the Legislature's activity and all, but this was great.

    April Fool's Day is a wicked mistress.

  2. Moogie, "Wicked Mistress." Nyuk!

    Jim...I got buzzed by this one about a year ago by a bud from MS...

    To my shame, it took me about 10 minutes to start laughing. Sigh...

  3. Geez, this April Fool joke goes back 30 years at least...

  4. Cosmic, not everyone can remember 30 years back...

  5. Jeez, I was sitting here trying to think of something, not very nice, to say about Les Miles, when it dawned on me that it was a joke. I'm a bit slow on the uptake today I guess.


Don't cuss nobody out, okay?
