A white tiger?

Okay, here's a hypothetical sitatuation: Imagine you worked for a fortune 15 company and were on the periphery of the team arranging the annual sales conference. The conference is going to be in Las Vegas this year. The events guru just came up with entertainment for the Awards Banquet: a white tiger! A real one.

Okay, I know I'm super sensitive and cry at those killer-whale shows... but seriously, folks! Show of hands:

How many of you find this objectionable?

Hi! Just found your blog; I'm 39 too and going through IF, and just had my IVF switched to an IUI b/c of low follicle count. You are the follicle goddess!!! 24?!

So, so sorry about the extremely drawn out miscarriage. That TOTALLY sucks, and I can't imagine how much that hurts emotionally.

It's like every week that causes some delay causes me some psychic damage at my age...

I look forward to following your journey!

oh, and I can't believe any company in the Bay Area would do something with a live tiger. That is just bizarro... and would rub me the wrong way too unless the plan was to have the tiger eat a colleague of my choosing.

Unless the tiger gets something out of it... like being set free to live a sweet tiger life after... I say no!

uggh! awful! My hand not only raised but waving around in the air like some of the overeager freshmen I teach.

Didn't Sigfried & Roy teach anyone anything about letting some animals be wild? Don't mean to go all political, but Ringling was in town last weekend- I got stuck in the traffic- and it got me thinking some more...

Really, folks. Aren't there any good motivational speakers out there? I don't mean the kind that charge 15K for an hour- but maybe some kid who's beaten the odds or someone with an inspiring personal story about something other than fame & fortune?

More than offensive, personally I think it's kinda cheesy! With all you get get in Vegas, that isn't anywhere NEAR the top of the list!

Rain Child said...

Really? Someone actually suggested this? That's "entertainment"? Wow. My hand is raised.

Whoa! Definitely objectionable. Glad you said something.
