What did he buy: Three tigers

We all know Mike Tyson filed for bankruptcy in 2003 because, well, he wasn't very good with his money - especially when he bought three US140,000 tigers as pets! Not only was it bizarre, according to court documents, he spent almost US$4,000 a month caring for ONE tiger, and that does not include the sum he has to pay to insure them. Way to go, Mike.
