Tiger Woods’s $10 million FedEx Cup bonus put him over the $1 billion career earnings mark (including prize money, appearance fees, endorsements, bonuses and his golf course design business), according to a Sept. 29 report on Forbes.com.
How to put this into terms you can probably understand?
Well, with that much money, Tiger could purchase more than 74,500 five-month-old female tigers ($13,400 apiece) from the Web site BuyTigers.com, “the ONLY ONES IN THE WORLD selling tigers online.”
According to the site, a tiger “is probably the strongest feline predator on earth, but you will discover that it can be a lovely pet as well, loyal, friendly and TOTALLY HARMLESS."
They say money can’t buy you happiness, but if you own 74,500 tigers, surely you can name one of them “Happiness.”
