Next Year, a Bidet

Here's a link:
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/6867209/. What's important about the link is not the guy who sold ad space on his forehead for $37,000, although that's certainly impressive. No, what's positively mind-boggling is the link to MSNBC video on the right side of that page--in particular, the story "Elephant Toilets." And when they say "toilet," they do mean porcelain throne.

Obviously, I am now required by law to list the top-five publications enjoyed by elephants while using the toilet:
5. National Review
4. A Remembrance of Things Past, by Marcel Proust
3. Ernest Hemingway: The Collected Short Stories
2. Reader's Digest
1. Peanuts

National Geographic? Sixth place.

Gloria suggested "Peanuts" and also added that if the elephant was listening to music it would be the album "Tusk."
