A Serious Tiger Sporting a Wild Tie

A tiger wearing a tiger tie, what else?

You may wonder what would make a tiger wear a necktie.   In the jungle the competition is stiff for mating and other serious business like acquiring food.  As in the urban jungle where men fight for dollars, women, and stature, wildlife face a never ending battle for survival.   In the urban jungle men who are serious contenders wear neckties which gives them the edge in the world of business and as well in attracting classy women for mating.  

An animal print tiger necktie, I would not imagine a tiger wearing any other tie.  In 1969 Playwright Don Petersen's play, "Does a Tiger Wear a Necktie" portrayed a drug rehabilitation center which was more like a prison for young junkies.  The title of the play is taken from a speech by the character Fullendorf:  “Does a tiger wear a necktie?  It ain’t for us to go straight.  We’re like the tigers.  We always chucked on raw meat.  We was raised on it, and we like it.”  Al Pacino won a Tony Award for best supporting actor which he accepted inmost modest manner.
