Was Tony The Tiger Driven Off Twitter By Unbelievably Horny Furries? by A. Feinberg
Oh my gawd. People in our culture ruin everything by sexualizing everything, even a cartoon mascot tiger for breakfast cereal.
All these people tweeting obscene comments at the Tiger mascot, who wear “furry” costumes, who fantasize about having sex with costumed people, are sickos. And losers.
Ultimately, these perverted moronic losers were Tweeting to the poor employee hired to track the cereal company’s social media. I feed sorry for whomever had to monitor that social media account to earn a paycheck.
If you’d like to ask Tony to “please frost my flakes, daddy,” you’re going have to send him a letter now like everyone else.

…A little over two years ago, people were delighted to discover that, in the replies to every tweet from @realtonytiger, the official Tony the Tiger Twitter account, dozens of mascot-mad furries could be found begging the cereal tiger for sex. These tended to be pleas written in what grammarians refer to as the horny imperative: “@realtonytiger fist me tony,” one user wrote in 2015, “i love you.”
