I love how the elephant gets up all embarrassed.
His friends are behind him, laughing their trunks off.

Ski Resorts Ban New Snowboards

A half-dozen U.S. ski resorts are joining in protests against two new lines of snowboards that feature images of Playboy models
Smugglers' Notch in Vermont has banned employees from using the Love and Primo boards made by Burton Snowboards.
Vail Resorts has prohibited employees of its Vail, Breckenridge, Beaver Creek and Keystone resorts in Colorado and California's Heavenly Mountain from using the Love boards or any other inappropriate, offensive or suggestive equipment while on duty.
The boards also led to a demonstration last week outside Burton's headquarters in Burlington, Vermont.

Small Bits of News You Didn’t Know you Needed

Police kills an innocent man
Calif. man killed by police in mistaken identity
A newlywed killed by police after he stepped outside his home to confront suspected burglars was shot in a case of mistaken identity, police said.
Julian Alexander died after being shot twice in the chest by a police officer who was chasing four burglary suspects early Tuesday morning.
Police Chief John Welter said the officer ran into Alexander, mistook him for one of the four juvenile suspects and shot him.
"He was a good kid, trying to protect his house," said Alexander's mother-in-law Michelle Mooney. "The police, instead of asking questions, they just shot first. Somebody has to be held responsible for this."
Man Says Drinking Hard Cider Turned His Skin Orange
A 47-year-old man who drank more than a gallon of hard cider every day for five years was forced to seek medical attention when his skin turned orange.
Michael Stenning, a divorced father of two, said he began drinking heavily when he lost his job five years ago and only decided to quit his habit when doctors told him he might die.
"It was a miracle," Dr. Sumita Verma, who researches alcoholic hepatitis. "I have never seen someone as sick as him leave the hospital alive."
Stenning’s skin turned orange, or jaundice, as a result of increased bile pigments in the blood, which is symptomatic of liver diseases such as hepatitis.
Stenning spent three weeks at the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton, England, where the medical staff helped him overcome his addiction.

Drunk woman pees her pants twice in police station
Officers responding to an accident in a field across from 8358 Hoke Road observed a female in the driver's seat of a vehicle stuck in mud.
The subject got out and started crying. An officer saw the vehicle was in reverse gear, its tires spinning. The subject smelled of alcohol and tripped and fell while being escorted to a cruiser.
She agreed to a field sobriety test but said she desperately needed to urinate. She then tried to walk to the side of the road and pull down her pants.
The subject was placed in the cruiser and taken to a police department interview room and asked if she needed the bathroom. She became agitated and said she would relieve herself in the interview room.
She then urinated in her pants and on the chair where she sat, then urinated again before being escorted to the bathroom. She refused sobriety tests, and was arrested for operating a vehicle intoxicated.
Surprise! You just hit a police cruiser
An officer stopped a female driver after observing her driving erratically in the area of Union Road and Denwood Trail.
The driver turned into the parking lot at Donato's, 811 Union Road, where she drove over the curb and partially onto the sidewalk. The officer was adjusting his in-car camera when the subject's vehicle rolled backwards, striking the cruiser.
The officer got out and told the subject to put her vehicle in park, but she said it was. The subject said she thought the officer hit her when advised she struck the cruiser.
There was an odor of alcohol on her breath, and she submitted to sobriety tests. She was subsequently arrested for driving under the influence.
Driver: 'I was blinded by mobile phone'
A teenager who sped away from police at more than 100mph said she was having trouble seeing while talking on her mobile phone.
Kimberly Messer, 18, from Springfield, Oregon in the US, was clocked doing 107mph, Oregon media reported.
State trooper Ryan Hockema said she told him she had trouble seeing while talking on her mobile phone before stopping for the officer.
According to the police report, the officer had tried to stop a red 1995 Ford Mustang he spotted going 87mph near a construction site.
The car then accelerated to speeds as high as 107mph in the work zone while failing to maintain the travel lane, following other vehicles too closely and making unsafe lane changes.
Messer was arrested on charges of reckless driving and recklessly endangering another person and has been jailed.
Traffic cone heist puzzles police
The motive behind the theft of 100 traffic cones from a busy road is a "mystery", police said.
The "unusual" heist of the brand-new cones happened on the A303 near Crewkerne in Somerset overnight between October 23 and 24 last week, officers said.
The theft occurred sometime between 5pm and 7am, and the cones were part of a lane closure leading from the Cartgate roundabout to the Ash/Martock junction.
The batch of orange unmarked cones belongs to a private firm and is worth £700.
It’s true, Chinese restaurant uses road kill
Is road kill on the menu at a popular Hamburg, NY restaurant? A disturbing discovery at the China King Restaurant has forced health officials to lock the doors.
Lisa Williams was going to eat in the restaurant when she got some upsetting news. "Were you coming to eat here?" "Yeah, we were coming to eat." "Did you hear what happened?" "No." "Health inspectors closed it down because there was road kill out here, a deer." "Oh no."
People who came to China King for their Friday dinner found it hard to believe. A dead deer had been butchered inside the kitchen in the restaurant they've been coming to for years.
Patron, Sue Bender said, "Our daughter just called us because she knows this is our take out Chinese, and told us, you're not going to believe what was just on Channel Four."
A witness tells us he saw an Asian man dragging the deer inside.
"I watched him drag it across the parking lot and he dragged it through the front door of the China King Restaurant. I said this is just not right, so I called Hamburg Police and reported it. Sure enough by the time they got there, they said that he had the deer almost all butchered inside the restaurant."
