Like Keeping Tigers?

Keeping palm trees is like keeping tigers? Have they gone completely mad?

Palm tree ahead danger

The headline doesn't even make sense.

"What if one of those leaves caught a child in the eye, for example? It is a little bit like keeping tigers: they are beautiful to look at but you wouldn't want them wandering the streets.

Yes, I suppose palm trees wandering the streets would be a bit much. Are they sure this wasn't just a Monty Python skit?

"Tiger brand coffee
It's a real treat
Even tigers prefer coffee
to real meat."
-- M. Python

"... the nanny state has gone absolutely mad."
