At least one of them is still alive?

We'll be the last people to have a roasted-(now extinct) wood buffalo-barbecue?

That is a pretty picture...

We have a fierce, man eating tiger?

The boat is made from extremely fragile glass?

Is this statement turning something bad into something good? Something good into something bad? Is it humourous? Serious? Is it a quote from someone?

At least one of them is still alive? He's dead, Jim!

We'll be the last people to have a roasted-(now extinct) wood buffalo-barbecue? We'll be dead soon, Jim!

That is a pretty picture... I fail to see the significance

We have a fierce, man eating tiger? Lions and tigers and bears, oh my!

The boat is made from extremely fragile glass? most glass is fragile, but no

Is this statement turning something bad into something good? yope Something good into something bad? yope Is it humourous? depends on your sense of humor, but very likely Serious? anything but Is it a quote from someone? probably, since it's not a FOMI but I don't know who

No, this isn't a rulebreaker... just trying to stay away from "no, no, no, no, ....")

The objective is to find the other part of the phrase in the title.

Turning some bad situation into another bad one? A worse one? Turning a good situation into another good one? A better one?

Animals relevent? How many? 1? 2? ...... 99999999999?
Relevent what type of animals? Domestic? Wild? Birds? Fish? Mammals?
People relevent? How many? 1? 2? ...... 99999999999?

Turning some bad situation into another bad one? A worse one? Turning a good situation into another good one? A better one? My 'yope' may have 'bloopered' on me... 'situation' is irrelevant.

Animals relevent? How many? 1? 2? ...... 99999999999?
Relevent what type of animals? Domestic? Wild? Birds? Fish? Mammals?
People relevent? How many? 1? 2? ...... 99999999999?

all the above is irrelevant.




Hint (really almost a cheat):Google turned up the answer for me near the top of page 4. What did I search? try to figure it out!
