Rootin' Tootin' Putin



There is a great story on the news today about how the former president of Russia and current Prime Minister of Russia, Vladimir Putin, saved a tv crew from an escaped attacking tiger.

http://www.cnn.com/2008/WORLD/europe/09/01/putin.tiger.shoot.ap/index.html

Seems the tiger escaped and was just about to eat the film crew.

Putin pulls out a tranquilzer gun, shoots said tiger with dart, tiger snoozes, film crew lives.

It's all good.

The greatest part of the story?

The greatest part of the story is that Putin walks around with a gun loaded with tranquilzer darts.

And he happens to run into escaped charging tiger hungry for Hollywood.

And he has a tranquilzer loaded gun. A LOADED TRANQUILZER GUN!!!

The Prime Minsiter of Russia.

Somehow there is more to the story.

Or something.

You should have combined them into something along the lines of "Rootin' Tootin', High-Falootin', Tiger Shootin' Putin!" and then conveniently "forgotten" to credit Maddog at all. (And if Putin was the leader of Germany, instead, you could have worked in "Guten.")
