Thailand Tourists Get 'Massaged' By 3-Ton Elephants

This one might not have a happy ending.

— -- Intense fear isn't an emotion typically associated with a massage. But then again, the masseuse isn't typically a three-ton elephant.

The masseurs weigh thousands of pounds and use their feet (that's there the intense fear part comes into play) and trunks to administer the pampering to visitors who lie on the ground, face down, with a towel on their backs.

The towel is not likely to offer much protection in the event the elephant decides to crush the guest; presumably it's there to keep clothes clean.
