The sad news that a groomer was killed by a startled elephant at the Shrine Circus in the Kingston Armory reminded me of an episode of the Mary Tyler Moore Show.
I won't get into the argument about using wild animals for entertainment as it has been done for centuries.
I'm sure I will get beat up for posting this but I think it's an example of life imitating art. Chuckles the Clown met his untimely demise when an elephant sat on him resulting in many obvious jokes by the cast that Mary didn't think was funny until the day of the funeral when she lost it.
