Mini Van Driver in South Jersey Picks a Tiger King Side
Life in South Jersey moves pretty quick. If you don't stop to look around once in a while, you could miss things like this -- a mini van driver who clearly knows where they stand in the Joe Exotic/Carole Baskin 'Tiger King' saga.
Let me back up, in case you haven't watched the notorious 'Tiger King' reality series on Netflix so many of us become obsessed with during quarantine. It pits Joe Exotic, who runs a tiger and big cat sanctuary, against Carole Baskin, a big cat rescuer who thinks Joe just exploits tigers for profit. They're rivalry is one for the ages.
The series reveals that Carole Baskin's second husband Don Lewis just disappeared without a trace in 1997, and was declared dead in 2002. While she's never been formally charged, many 'Tiger King' viewers believe she Carole killed Don, and think the investigation into his whereabouts and/or death should be reopened.
So, now you can understand, when I came upon this mini van on Tilton Road in Egg Harbor Twp., why I had to take a picture of the message scrawled on its back window. 'Honk if Carole Baskin killed her husband!!', it reads. I laughed out loud. How could I NOT? Anyone who's gone down the 'Tiger King' rabbit hole would have.
Wondering if I did? Honk, that is? You bet your Carole Baskin I did, lol.
