Q: Why do elephants drink so much? A: to try to forget


For years the elephants of Africa have endured taunts and barbs, accused of engaging in wild, drunken, bacchanalian parties after consuming the fruit of the marula tree. Despite their protests of innocence, the elephants have failed to dispel the spurious rumours, until now. Scientists have now proven that even the largest, laziest, couch-potato elephant could not possibly eat enough marula fruit in one day to get drunk. Elephants have announced a celebratory party in honour of their vindication. Free rice beer to all who attend.
