Hunting elephants for sport is not illegal in some parts of Africa and many tour companies allow tourists to join organised hunting trips.

This is what you call "killing for fun".

I'm going to break into your house in the middle of the night, Utrecht, and steal your 11 weeks' vacation.

I was in Zambia and the locals found me weird because I didn't want to go shooting elephants with them. I'd rather be weird - thank you.

Wait, wait, wait.. I'm confused.

Is this a thread about how mean you can be, or is it about the meanness of hunting elephants? Cause then my original comment would make no sense (although I'd still do it!).

Given the emoticons that Michael used - I think it's about the "meanness" of hunting elephants (regardless of the weapon and a bow/arrow just make it worse). Your comment made sense to me, T.

It's the shooting of the elephant and then "letting it die overnight" (yeah, that's humane) that got me. Love the blogger's comment of "Stunning looking, and a (sic) avid hunter." Now there's a resume to be proud of - or not.

Beerman's parents went on a safari in Africa back in the 60s. One of their traveling companions was shooting everything in sight and insisted that Beerman's dad also "collect" a trophy. He finally took the rifle, aimed at a tree branch and shot. He took the branch to the taxidermist to have it mounted and brought it home.

Haha, that's what I thought later. The emoticons are a link Tway, but that's not visible. So I was expecting some people to click on the emoticons for the link like Hien did and some to show us their ability to be mean. You succeeded extremely succesfully Tway

I thought of steeling the last beer or cigarette (the 11 weeks where gone)when I found out that is was about shooting elefants.
