Tigers Eat Penguins

Elena is a second grader. This was our conversation.

ELENA: Mr. Bowers, my mom wants to know if you are rooting for the Tigers in the World Series?
MR. BOWERS: I'm sorry but I don't root for tigers because tigers eat penguins.
ELENA: Tigers don't eat penguins Mr. Bowers. Tigers don't even live in the same place as penguins!
MR. BOWERS: What? Are you kidding me? Are you telling me that if a tiger broke loose at the zoo he wouldn't go straight to the penguin habitat? Whatever! He would gobble up those penguins like Popsicles!

Then I just walk away.

I think tigers would go for the walruses or the seals first. They have more meat than a popsicle.

the penguins put up less of a fight and might be easier to catch. kinda like an appetizer.
