Meet The Fringepig Team...Business Leopard

Business Leopard once worked as a stuffed toy tax inspector; a demanding job since stuffed toys are unaccustomed to paying taxes and don’t really have much understanding of currency.

Business Leopard has a large safe that’s full of stuffing, googly eyes, felt noses and various arms and legs taken from deadbeats and defaulters. The judicious foreclosure on limbs and appendages propelled his unproductive corner of the nursery back to profit in just three months.

Business Leopard takes a similarly hard line in his position of reviewer-reviewer: No rookie critic, scribbling spidery notes at the back of a dark room, wants the no-nonsense Business Leopard looking over his shoulder.
