WORSE THAN YOURS
San Francisco Zoo has an elephant named Calle who has a
chronic illness, requiring medication. The zoo people couldn't
get Calle to take her dose orally, so a pharmacologist developed
an anal suppository.
The 10-inch-long, four-pound, cocoa-butter bullets are
crafted by the good folks at Guittard Chocolates in Burlingame.
Administering the DAILY medication takes five zoo workers,
including one person to distract Calle with treats and one
person who wears a full-arm glove.
FIVE people have jobs worse than yours.
Now stop complaining and get back to work!
