escape dot com slash Tivo. Now let's hear about tigers. So I'm talking to my friend Tony and he's a car dealer, right? So I'm talking to him and he's getting he said listen such and such owed me some money if you don't pay me my money, I'm gonna sell some of these cars and get some animals and pets. I said you know what kind of pets? You know like a cougar jaguar or some horses? I said really? He said, yeah, like what do you think? See you and your flyers at 50 for? Right, I think you look in the white tiger and you're driving past to see and I'm in prison. I'm saying, wow, that would be awesome coming back like that after a year. So when I got home I had to cut tiger cup waiting Shit wow. And and how, I mean I remember pictures of you with the tiger that looked like full grown. Yeah. Until they 14 I had them. So you had you had kept the tiger for 14 years. Damn. And uh and then what happened to, well she had to go, she started getting older, second we had kids. And so they took her to like I wanted to do but habitat sanctuary. Yeah. So I had no idea. You kept that Tiger for 14 years. It was just one tiger to have two of them. Damn. Is there ever a moment where you're like, oh fuck. Like these tigers can turn on me only one there together. I worry about it because listen, you've got one guy over here is £400 or one go over and sit and they start playing even playing, how am I going to get involved? And then they can imagine they're mad at each other. What am I gonna do? Joe exotic would get in there and you know you can't do this stuff that fuck, that's the television. So how do you take care of tigers? Do you have someone like uh I had a trainer. Too few trainers and I also had that's just awesome. And cavemen. They had a whole house and I was in Vegas.
