    Really feel sorry for the unfortunate lot in the car, but really can't stop laughing !! In the third picture it seems that the elephant is resting on the car, just like he is leaning his a*** on it LOL !! This is what happens when one disrespects nature and goes too close to wild animals.

    Apparently the elephant figured the driver needed to be reminded that pedestrians have the "right of way".

    While I do hope the dirver was okay, I did find this amusing. Can you imagine trying to report this to your insurance company? LOL
