Media is tough these days. Not as bad as back in '07, but still rough. So I was thinking about trying some easier gig like feeding tigers.

Take a look at the image above. That's a keeper at the Siberian Tiger Forest Park in Harbin, Heilongjiang yesterday, preparing to feed 11 of the more than 800 tigers at the park. Is this the worst job in the world -- or the best? On the one hand, look at all those hungry, beautiful tigers. And on the other hand, look at all those hungry, beautiful tigers.
