LSU Fanatics Roast Fake Baby Elephant
Fans in the South can get really crazy when it comes to SEC football and LSU fans are arguably the most unstable of the bunch. And what a group of Tiger fans did before Saturday’s game with No. 1 Alabama was nothing short of deranged.
The Twitter handle for ESPN The Magazine tweeted this out Saturday morning, causing hysteria on the internet:

The “joke,” of course, is that Alabama’s mascot is an elephant. Apparently - and thankfully - it wasn’t an actual baby elephant. According to Twitter user kato43, it was a traditional pig roast with a twist: A trunk and floppy ears were sewn onto the pig to make it look like a baby elephant.

While we’re glad no baby elephants were harmed, we’re not sure this is any less insane.
