I came home from kindergarten at Emerson Elementary very proud of my newly learned counting rhyme. Eeenie Meenie, Minie, Moe, Catch A Nigger By The Toe, If He Hollers Let Him Go. My mother said, 'It's Tiger, dear.' And, all the other mommies in Berkeley told their kids, 'It's Tiger, dear'. And so it was.

Only much later did it occur to me that, well, tigers don't have toes, and this would be sort of dangerous activity with an actual tiger, and something was up here. But by that time it was tiger for good and sure. Everybody said 'tiger'. dave.s.
