Hey man, this time is different. I'm not saying it's impossible-just that if the neighbors start breeding tigers or polar bears, I'm leaving town before there's an accident. And my father would probably move to another state, province or district to get away from this kind of thing. He's kinda skittish when it comes to large animals.
I guess we can put this down to a generation gap or fundamentally different perspectives on storytelling. Because we definitely have major miss-matches in our expectations.
