Spontaneously Combusting Elephants Answered

Thought you might all like to have a chuckle, as I did when I recieved this saftey alert. Priceless simply priceless... Enjoy ;) Apparently the concrete Budda's weren't to crash hot either. Pardon the pun.

This is so going to end up as a self-sustaining internet myth. This and the poodle in the microwave.

I found our load of them... Unfortunatley already unwrapped so no chance of combusting.
I'll snap a pic tomorrow to add to the myth.

That would be very funny if it did end up as a myth...

Believe me it's no myth , over 500 outlets having to deal with this. I would assume there are other stockists as well.

I believe it doesn't quite cut it as spontaniously since there were external stimuli involved eg. Heat source. Yet you couldn't get much closer to it though.... :)

Poor lil' elephants didn't even see it coming... te he!

I'm thinking either build up of paint fumes inside or perhaps a magnification effect generated by numerous layers of clear plastic wrap. Either way funny as hell.

or methane(elphants are big(and eat alot(and food is turned to methane(and they probably had no room to poop, cuz they were cooped up))))

That would explain the Budda's too. Wait does Budda deficate? Oh well that's what you get for packing 100 methane filled elephants in a pallet container. LoL

Especially since there was two completley separate fires. Which almost rules out a chance fire.

I can't wait till they figure out why... I'll most ceratainly post that too.

Being the OH&S rep for the store, I muchly enjoyed notifying all staff members of the issue whether it was of importance to them or not.
Many laughs were had by all. :)
