    Beer + Electricity = Dead Elephants

    MSNBC LINK

    Elephants electrocuted in drunken rampage

    GAUHATI, India - Six Asiatic wild elephants were electrocuted as they went berserk after drinking rice beer in India's remote northeast, a wildlife official said Tuesday.Nearly 40 elephants came to a village on Friday looking for food. Some found beer, which farmers ferment and keep in plastic and tin drums in their huts, said Sunil Kumar, a state wildlife official.
    They got drunk, uprooted a utility pole carrying power lines and were electrocuted in Chandan Nukat, a village nearly 150 miles west of Shillong, the capital of Meghalaya state, Kumar said.

    Continued at MSNBC.

    I hate it when a group of wild elephants come and crash a party.

    Re: Beer + Electricity = Dead Elephants

    Electrocution is probably the best-case scenario that could result from drinking rice beer...

    What a good waste of rice. Elephants weigh a ton and can drink couple barrels of brew. What were the natives thinking. Gilligan's Island?

    Im just glad I have Homan as my bodyguard, Eustachy joked. If I ever make it real big and get to drive a limo everyday, hell be driving it. I thought he came off the bench like somebody was stealing his cow or something.

    This happened at my house just like week. Try convincing the garbage man to take 6 dead elephant carcuses from your front curb.
