Horton Hears A Poo Elephant dung is so hot right now: press releases for the upcoming DVD release of Horton Hears A Who! are all printed on paper made from recycled elephant poop . (The paper is meant to impart economic value to Sri Lankan elephants, which are often killed because they compete with local farmers for space.) But it's not just press releases: the dung is also selling like hot cakes in India, where it is used as a cheap mosquito repellent. If only we could find a way to turn the shit slung by the modern GOP into a force for good. [Outside Blog , Hindustan Times ]
