When The Tiger Orders Carne Asada, He Spells It "CarneY"

White Trash Wednesday

Hey, dumbass - Tigers? Do. Not. TALK!:

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- A Florida fair worker was hospitalized Sunday after he put his hand into a tiger cage at the Putnam County Fair in an apparent attempt to "communicate" with the animal, Local 6 News reported.

Jason Wayne Hardin, 25, of Westville, stuck his arm into the tiger's cage about 2:25 a.m. Sunday, said Major Keith Riddick of the Putnam County Sheriff's Office.

Hardin told wildlife officers that he was putting up fencing at the fair when he decided to "communicate" with the animal, Local 6 News reported.

The white tiger bit the man and severed a tendon in Hardin's arm.

It's White Trash Wednesday! Take the whole tour:

When I heard this story on the radio Monday morning, I just knew I would see it again on WTW.

If I'm not mistaken, I think Mr Hardin was also drunk at the time.

Or does that go without saying?
