Shhhhh ... don't upset the elephants
If you look for it you are sure to find strange and funny news where ever you look. So to take a break from all the Catholic stuff that's going on around the world.. and there is some interesting stuff. Lets talk World Cup football.
So the US football team has had some problems in South Africa. It's not that anyone got injured or anything. It's not that they are not liked. It's not the facilities. It's the animals. According to an article from the associated press, twice elephants blocked the road and delayed the team. It shouldn't be a suprise since there are signs that tell you there are wild animals around:
like this one outside the U.S. hotel: "ELEPHANTS COME CLOSE TO OUR FENCE KEEP A DISTANCE OF 30 METERS AND PLEASE BE QUIET,"
and this sign: "BABOONS ARE DANGEROUS -- PLEASE KEEP CLEAR OF THEM AND DO NOT FEED THEM."
And this one: "THIS IS BIG 5 TERRITORY TREAT THE ANIMALS WITH RESPECT AND THEY WILL RETURN THE COMPLIMENT."
The U.S. captain Carlos Bocanegra said "It was cool... A big elephant, just eating on the path out of our hotel."
Yeah! Sure it was dude. but from the picture above... I wouldn't want to meet that guy on a dirt road anywhere unless I was in a car.
Still, Praise God that the animals still have room to be free!
