As we are soon coming up on HALLOWEEN I thought I’d post the most macabre illustration in the elephant book. Behold, if you dare:
This illustrates a true story of an elephant who trampled some poor guy to death and then kept the corpse, carrying it around for several weeks. I guess that elephants like to keep their “hunting trophies” too.
Speaking of hunting, if you like a cartoon that goes for your funny bone rather than your heart-strings, go and see OPEN SEASON which is playing at theatres now. Reviewers are quick to point out that this film enters territory already covered in other fims released in the last year, which may be so, but I think this one does it funnier. It is also rather beautiful to look at; some of the most gorgeously art directed poop gags ever. There is no higher recommendation on the BAKER-scale than that.
