I remember watching Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom as a kid, probably about 6 or 7 years old, and they said that the elephants were making people unhappy by destroying "mangroves".

Does anybody remember that Skittles ad where the farmer planted Skittles candies in the ground and a rainbow grew out of it? I can tell you by experience that it doesn't work.
