  4. "sad tigers are becoming extinct"

    and the presumably happy tigers, the man-eating ones, are they becoming extinct too?

  5. hahaha!!

    dear Poet in residence -- that was a typo...i missed a comma after sad:

    it could have been

    sad, tigers are becoming extinct

    or

    sad that tigers are becoming extinct

    As far you concern goes === am not sure if man eating tigers are happy...but China says, they will by all means be tough on illegal trade in tiger parts...

    does that ring a truth somewhere?? (2010 is year of tiger as per Chinese calender)

    Now, i'm not clear how they legalise trading tiger parts -- that only governments can trade?? :)

    anyway, interesting interpretation that a grammatical error could do! :)

    John : thanks, i had to clarify! :)
