Let's here it for team Butt Elephant.

I know this sort of thing happens all the time, but I just want to highlight the very rapid and hilarious in-thread puzzle solving in this AskMe.

So you might be look at that link and see the name of the video and think, "Now I wonder what could that mean?" because there's obviously no way that it's actually going to be a video of a man getting his head stuff in an elephant butt. But you'd be wrong. Very, very wrong.

Back when Gunther Gebel-Williams was still alive, his son was an elephant trainer with Ringling Brothers/Barnum and Bailey...we were at the circus and Williams was on the side of the ring as his son was putting the elephants thru their paces. One elephant got on a platform and started spinning (a typical circus stunt) and at that precise instant started taking a poo. It was like some demented lawn sprinkler as the elephant spun and pooed and the poo was flung wide.


I spotted Gunther on the side, in full facepalm.

My favorite part about the guy with his head up the elephant's butt? His sort of preparatory heaving, similar to what you see when the weightlifting guys lift like 20 zillion pounds.

My second favorite part was how quickly the woman rushed in to pull him out of said butt. I mean, I wanted to see if he could stay in there a little longer. But I imagine an elephant's anus around one's neck could be life-threatening.
