Drunk Elephants Violate Safe Social-Distancing

The coronavirus outbreak is taking the world by storm and many are practicing a safe social distancing.

A quarantined village in China's Yunnan province received some unexpected visitors this week when a herd of hungry elephants stormed the neighborhood looking for food -- but found alcohol instead.

The 14 elephants came upon a stash of eight gallons of corn wine and promptly drank it, Chinese authorities say. Apparently, a majority of the wine was downed by just two of the elephants, who were found passed out the next morning in a tea garden, officials say.

Villagers just left the passed-out pachyderms sleep off their hangovers. They left by the following evening.

Seems like to us, they took advantage of a very good opportunity.
