"The battery-operated devices with warning bells are being fixed a few hundred metres from houses to warn people of coming animals in good time."

What do you do if an elephant comes through your window?

I believe we farkers need to make a concerted effort to use the word "debacle" more often. Also, I believe that the word "moist" isn't used as much as it should be.

"It was then that she removed the moist debacle which had once been her pants..."

Hey, you know, you're right!

You need to undo debacle of the belt in order to get the moist pants down.

Yup yer right!

Nothing amazing there other than the clear decline in the level of jounalism from the Beeb.

I think the elephant population should be protected more than the Indians. A few thousand elephants, 1 thousand million Indians...

I've got a chili bomb in my poopchute from all the Mexican food I ate last night.

Luckily there are no elephants in Boston.

Elephants are the Russell Crowe of the nature documentary world. When the cameras stop rolling, the lions, wildebeest and zebra make urbane and charming company at the local wine bar. The elephants, on the other hand, are forever brawling, wrecking peoples' homes and running off with their wives.

Really hot chili spices always makes my nose run. Can you imagine the nightmare that results from an elephant with a runny nose?

"Care for some chili? I've added an extra ingredient just for you. The merciless peppers of Quetzlzacatenango! Grown deep in the jungle primeval by the inmates of a Guatemalan insane asylum!"

After reading this headline my IQ took a dip

India trifecta in play...

"moist" and "ointment" are two words that should be avoided, especially if you're starting a band.

Reed Richards would have a hard time making that lame ass stretch for humor....

IIRC a departing US ambassador to India humorously referred to Assam chilis as weapons of mass destruction.

Scoville surrenders.

Where I'm from, a "chilli bomb" is a shot of Crown Royal, droped into a glass of Red-Bull. Then shoot it.

Whoa! Since when does Wendy's trump Taco Bell in cliche headlines?

I think tedious was the word you were looking for.

"In 1992, one rogue elephants killed 42 villagers as it went on the rampage."

I am still trying to figure out how one elephant could kill that many people?

When they talk about chilli, they are not referring to that fake pseudo-Mexican meat dish you Americans eat, but to what you call chilli peppers.
