image for Alcoholic elephant's remains being dug up in Welsh pub!
He certainly could down a pint or two, boozer!

A circus elephant who loved a "bevvy" ot two and was buried in the grounds of his favourite drinking oasis, a Welsh pub, is now being dug up.

The elephant belonged to a circus and every time they passed by he used to "hang out" with the locals and was certainly an alcoholic.

Hearing of this very strange story, archaeological students from the University of Wales (they've nothing better to do?), decided to exhume the remains to find out if the elephant had actually died of too much boozing or cancer, which is caused by over excessive boozing, logical?

The exhumation is causing quite a stir in the village and nationally (Wales is pretty boring so anything would stir the emotions especially the remains of an alcoholic elephant buried in a pub there) and the landlord is hoping for bumper sales due to freaky tourists wanting a piece of the action!

Here his press statement:

"nothing much happens around here boyo, so having a dead, alcoholic elephant buried in your front garden is pretty exciting, boyo, wanna a pint or two?"

Several questions have been asked about this strange Welsh occurrence; why the hell was the elephant buried there in the first place and who the hell dug the massive hole?

What a circus!

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
