Siegfried and Roy

Siegfried and Roy

Didn’t play with stuffed animal toys

Millions of fan mail poured in --

when Roy’s white tiger took a slice of him

    These famous gents of Vegas captured the town when they had their rare white tiger act. I loved the loyalty shown when he wouldn't let authorities put his beloved tiger down. This one really touched me Gwen. So happy for your win!

    Must have happened when I was "out to lunch" because I don't remember a thing. Maybe the tiger got fed up with his part of the deal. You didn't say if he recovered!Love, Lizzie

    ooooooh, I remember this well. I am so happy I got to see their show in their hey day. It is sad their life had to change. I enjoyed your Clerihew. This is sure to place.
