I got thinking of DBZ tonight, and how they always have a tiger or a dog as the president, mayor, or any city official really. Always hit me as bizarre, but awesome. Its not like you're a tiger too, you're a regular joe human, just like in your hometown right now...but with a tiger for chief of police. Rest of the police force = human. The chief = tiger.
Hence the lion furiously trying to prepare for his state of the union. Enjoy.
