Mumble Pimp.

Amboseli Park elephant expert Joyce Poole's got something to say about the Lincoln Park elephant tragedies. Yo.

Laura Miller gives Kelly Link her props.

Scott Westerfeld's new book Peeps is out today. It's only his third book this year. Check it out.

Is it me, or is the specficblogosphere kinda quiet lately?

Given your well-documented penchant for all things elephantidae, do you know the name of the one at the Lincoln Park Zoo renowned (in some circles) for flinging its poo on visitors?

I heard two separate (and graphic) accounts of a disgruntled Asian elephant that delighted onlookers by dropping a healthy heap of dung on the mat, only then to cause complete pandamonium by propelling said excrement into the crowd.

I certainly hope this genius of the stage wasn't Wankie, Peaches or Tatima. Any clue?

Not really, Trent. If it was in recent years I'd guess it was one of the three. Not much else for them to do, unfortunately. Of course, sometimes elephants fling poo when they're happy or excited, so maybe they were just really happy to see your informants.
