Tony The Tiger

Tony has always been a sexy beast. He didn’t see it coming however, when Tony was inundated with “Furrie” fetish folks on Twitter. He’s masculine, yet gentle. Gives them the hots. Who knew?

This camera arrived in a Swiffer Sweeper box and was sent to me from Ian. I put a roll of Kodak BW400CN (a C41 process “b&w” film … like, fake b&w) film through my Tony:

We, and many of our neighbors, take these broken asphalt pieces and create what I refer to as a “poor man’s patio”.


Look. Hear.


Surfer boys.



How many places on earth offer a monolith park of above ground abandoned septic tanks?

Our same old erosion problems.

HJ and tire tracks.

A Pintoid image in the making.
Tony’s sexy backside. You can’t open the back unless you have a screwdriver. A design feature which is apparently meant to keep kids from accidentally opening the back.

Tony The Tiger doesn’t have much meat to work with. Imagination is the key. I do, however, have the [almost] perfect gown to go with the camera! The colors are correct, though the leopard spots aren’t tiger stripes. Oh well. A leopard can’t change its spots.

I’m sure everyone who works in WordPress gets spam messages sent to them as page comments. One I filtered today came from this very Tony The Tiger Camera page. It read, “Thank you for that smart critique. Me & my neighbour were preparing to do some research about that. We obtained a great book on that matter from our local library and most books exactly where not as influensive as your info. I am extremely glad to see such information which I was searching for a lengthy time.”  Hee hee … they spent a lengthy time researching the Tony The Tiger plastic Camera?

Actually, it IS pretty sophisticated and worldly. When you look at the bottom of the camera you’ll notice that it’s from Kellogg of Canada. Since it’s Canadian they gotta put all that French shit on there. But it came from China. So there’s, like, that. “Fabrique” [ … Monsieur Antonio le Tigre – or something like that.]

I like to think I don’t have a “type”. I like colorful, little plastic cameras that make snapping noises. I like tin and Bakelite 127s.
