Horton Hears A Poo

Illustration for article titled 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]
