    "Rock" band Iron Maiden went to a restaurant after a 1984 concert in Poland. The Maidens saw a wedding inside; after a chat, they took the wedding band's instruments and began playing for the night. Guests had no idea until the groom saw that his wedding band transformed into Iron Maiden.

    Ligers and Tigons and Pizzlies, oh my.

    Fact: I have actually seen a liger at a zoo for a field trip when I was middle school. Our tour guide said the zoo did not expect them to mate and that they only had the lion and tiger in the same cage temporarily until another spot opened up for one of them. I wonder if that was one of the first ligers?
