Mike the Tiger and a tiger shrimp: separated at birth? (Jennifer Abelson)

Come for the use of "menacing tiger shrimp" in a headline, stay for an LSU football allegory of startling clarity:

As summer approaches, fear and intrigue is building in south Louisiana over the latest menace prowling the waters of the Gulf of Mexico: the tiger shrimp. [...] The worry is that even more will be seen in the coming months, as last year’s stock may have exponentially reproduced. The shrimp, which have black and white stripes across their backs and tails similar to their jungle namesake, eat more and grow more quickly than native Gulf shrimp, prompting concerns they will out-compete the native shrimp for resources.
