A while back I answered someone’s question about whether elephants could stand after death. Well, I didn’t exactly answer it but you know.
As it turns out, this is a topic of apparently greater general interest than I realized. Here are the several most recent searches whereby people found this blog:
Swear to God I am not making this up. I can’t decide whether I am just the only person who’s ever written about this, so that whenever anyone in the world wants to know, I am the go-to guy, or whether there are just a lot more people wondering about this than I ever imagined.
And no, it’s not the same person doing multiple searches and stupidly clicking on the same link each time. They come from all over, and it’s not just today. This topic is the hottest one here, far ahead of the second place finisher (bruises and chocolate).
If you found this page by a similar search, please share, so that others who wonder about elephant post-mortem standing will know where to look for the best answer apparently available. Thank you. Also note my RSS feed, which will keep you supplied with regular doses of useless information.
