How's this for a birthday cake?

Mike the Tiger, LSU's live mascot since 2007, was actually born on July 23, 2005. In celebration of his 10 years, Mike was given a cake made with raw meat and decorated with goat milk letters and hard-boiled eggs.

According to LSU, Mike eats 25 pounds of food daily, but this meal was a special treat for the sixth live mascot in LSU's history.

Happy Birthday to me. Happy Birthday to me! Meat cake with goats milk letters and hard boiled eggs. Jealous?
