Every Now and Zen

Headline: Elephant Eats Scores of Cookies, Gets Sick
COLOMBO, Sri Lanka (AP) - Sri Lanka's most celebrated elephant, "Raja," has fallen ill after eating scores of cookies, chocolates and other rich food offered to him as part of Buddhist new year celebrations.
What a bunch of Dumbos. They should be ashamed of themselves. (tusk, tusk, tusk.)

Everything in moderation - right. Should've stuck with the peanuts.

You think someone will have to hold his ears back while he vomits? Or does he just blast it out like a fire hose through his trunk? I have no idea how an elephant throws up. Just stand back - about 300 ft - is the best thing to do, I guess.

Do they refer to it as worshipping the ivory god? Do they see pink elephants when they're sick? I wonder if animal crackers would settle his stomach.

One thing is for sure - he'll never forget this shit.

I wouldn't be worried about the vomiting...knowing how dogs (other mammals) react to food they're not used to...whew!

Someone should have at least bought him some shots. Must be a lightweight.

tsk tsk....poor budhists. They should have stuck to their old tradition. Giving beer to the family dog to watch him stumble.

hehe - more than 300 feet i'd say. Just had the funniest image of a zoo keeper holding back the elephants ears =P
