You have to wonder about the first person to think of this...process "Oh look, that poop has coffee beans in it, lets brew some and see how it tastes."
No, thanks, I'll take the non-poop variety.
Yeah weird. Why an elephant? Why not a horse or something.

A few years ago , a man walked into our 3 man -Fire Department with a paper bag that he said he found in a ditch along side the street in a residential area. It contained 3 sticks of very old dynamite. Our fire crew took it down to the creek and the county sherrif detonated it.
There was a pretty big crowd to watch. (not much exciting goes on around here. LOL)

Because horses don't eat coffee beans.

I figured they used elephants because they are so damn big. You can process more beans in an elephant than one of those tiny civet cats. Then I read the story, the elephant eats 75 lbs of coffee cherries to produce one pound of crappuchino beans. Not very efficient.

Karma's a bitch:

An Illinois state senator running for former Democratic U.S. Representative Jesse Jackson Jr.'s seat in Congress was released on bond on Thursday, following his arrest for trying to bring a gun onto an airplane.
A Cook County judge set bail at $25,000 for Donne Trotter, 62, on the felony charge. Trotter, who has called the incident an honest mistake, posted bond and was released shortly afterward.
If convicted, Trotter could face a sentence ranging from probation to up to four years in prison, according to prosecutors.
Trotter, a Chicago Democrat, is a gun control advocate who once voted "no" on a measure that would have allowed state residents to carry concealed weapons.

Default Yeah, these Rubber Ducks are the most dangerous things entering the country.

They may have had better luck on Santa’s sleigh, but more than 35,000 holiday-themed rubber ducks from China were detained by U.S. Customs officials at the Port of Los Angeles.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers seized the ducks -- dressed as snowmen, gingerbread men, penguins and reindeer -- which were valued at $18,522, after determining they contained the chemical phthalate in excess of the limit which may be harmful to children.
Phthalates are used to make vinyl and other plastics soft and flexible, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security said in a statement. Consumer officials prohibit the sale, distribution and import of any child's toy or child care item that contains concentrations of more than 0.1% of phthalate.
In the last four years, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Customs and Border Protection stopped more than 8.5 million units of about 2,400 different toys and children’s products due to safety hazards or failure to meet federal safety standards, officials said.
Thank you DHS.
Yes, thank you for keeping the semi-free world safe from Rubber ducks with too much softener chemical in their rubber compound. Apparently Rubber ducks containing more than .1% Phthalate are a larger danger to US society than Methamphetamine and the other dangerous chemicals (& people) that cross our border on a regular basis.

That chicken with more drugs in it than the entire (former) East German Women's Weight Lifting Team is just fine. The FDA & USDA say so. They are the government, if the government says so, it must be true.

The funny thing is, if I saw one of those rubber ducks on a shelf at the store, there's a very good chance I'd buy one.

I grew up in the 60's. Plastics and Rubbers were coming of age. Everbody was making toys. From Silly Putty to the Original Superballs. I wonder what was in those early plastics...I'm guessing it wasn't good.
