    He called the tiger ‘Spot’ one too many times.

    Well, that’s definitely not Fortunato.

    Ladies and gentlemen, Wild Cards v Down and Dirty — when wrestling finally gets real.

  4. The Blue Are Coming Says:

    The Kzin caught him with five aces.

  5. Tor Mented Says:

    Yeah, how’s this for “rising up to the challenge of our rival.”

  6. The Blue Are Coming Says:

    @Tor – another GSS for you !

    The homeowners told the PetsitterPlus agent that Fluffy will eventually eat when he gets hungry…

    Cards Against Zoomanity gets ugly.

    “You’re the one with opposable thumbs, so you can hold the base of the table and I’ll take the top end.”

    “I thought they said if you hold a mirror up to a tiger it will immediately calm him down.”

    It was the first and last time Johnny Bravo would flirt with Chmeee’s girlfriend.

    I want one of those stuffed tigers!
    I’ll wheel it to the front door next time those Jehovah’s Witnesses come knocking, and give them a growling welcome…

    The hair and glasses were one thing, but it was the green velour track suit that finally put Shere Khan over the top.

  14. Leak Says:

    I see XKCD’s bobcat in a box got itself a competitor…

  15. GSS ex-noob Says:

    The last picture of Siegfried while he was alive. Does this illustrate a very short story, or is it a spoiler for a longer one? That manhole cover isn’t going to do any good.

    I was trying to decide who to award a GSS to when I realized everyone deserves one. Extra to @Tor for the earworm and @FB for best interpretation of the title.

  16. Lars Of Mars Says:

    It’s been so long since I read the Wild Cards books that I can’t place what characters or story this represents.
    Back in the late 90’s I lent the series to a co-worker who promptly quit and disappeared. Good thing I didn’t give him the Terry Pratchett!

  17. Bruce A Munro Says:

    “I hope you realize this restaurant is getting zero stars on Yelp!”

  18. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Bruce: And he’d thought “The Frog and Peach” was bad… not compared to “The Empty Table and Leaping Tiger”. Their website doesn’t mention it’s actually a restaurant *for* tigers…

  19. Anti-Sceptic Says:

    Man-Kzin Wars…the early days.

    “Well, that’s definitely not Fortunato.”
    I think it’s Croyd…
