Elephant beauty contest contestant


Caption for the photo above, which appears on page six of Section A of today's Washington Post: "A mahout, or elephant keeper, decorates his pachyderm before an elephant beauty pageant in Sauraha, a village south of Kathmandu, Nepal's capital. The pageant is part of a three-day elephant festival."

I will report back with the results if I am able to obtain them.

If not, well, my vote's for the beauty up top.

But wait, there's more: turns out that among the events during the elephant festival was an elephant soccer match.

You could look it up.

All I can say is, where's the guy who's supposed to be painting my toenails?
