Elephants on Xanax
2006-08-31-- Posted by: allegra

Just in case this link has disappeared, it's the heartwarming story of how Tanzy the Elephant at the Abilene Zoo quit bugging her barnmate and the keepers when they started putting ibuprofen and Xanax in her chow. Somehow "Elephants on Xanax" was too good a subject heading to pass up. It also reminds me of (editor's note, knock it off) something I probably should stop talking about right now. Never mind.

Uh, that should be 'ex-boyfriends', in that last post. Katie is not working on polyandry, to the best of my knowledge.
