Copycats

A dog has "adopted" three tiger cubs at a Kansas zoo, reports the Associated Press. Coolest part is the photo:
Well, it'd be coolest except for the fact that the whole trans-species rearing thing is passe ever since a little Tori Amos CD known as "Boys For Pele":
She should've called it "Girls for Piggy," I think. ... That's right. You forgot Tori Amos let a piglet suckle on her bosom, didn't you? Tried to block it from your mind, but it was still there, tucked somewhere beside the memory of Eddie Murphy's musical career, the phrase "Shall we play a game?" and the name of Salt-n-Pepa's DJ.
