    Default Hilton Tries to Help Drunk Elephants

    GAUHATI, India -- Paris Hilton is being praised by conservationists for highlighting the problem of binge-drinking elephants in northeastern India.

    Activists said a celebrity endorsement such as Hilton's was sure to raise awareness of the plight of the pachyderms that get drunk on farmers' homemade rice beer and then go on a rampage.

    "The elephants get drunk all the time. It is becoming really dangerous. We need to stop making alcohol available to them," the 26-year-old socialite said in a report posted on World Entertainment News Network's Web site. Her comments were picked up by other Web sites and newspapers around the globe.

    Well, it does have that made-up sort of quality, but without the humor of the Onion. The story was evidently written for those who like to follow the herd.

    Hahahaha. It does kind of echo the Onion, but the sad thing of course is that its not from the Onion, its true.

    But on a serious note, if you were the farmer whose beer was getting drank, wouldn't you really really want to stop it? A single elephant can put away what, dozens of gallons at a time? That has got to be seriously reducing their profits, or their buzz.

    I wished she helped drunk elephants in Arizona as well as India. Grips and I would have been loving life last weekend.
