Because Will Smith DID electrocute elephants?

Jan. 4, 1903: Edison Fries an Elephant to Prove His Point. Topsy the elephant was electrocuted at Luna Park Zoo on Coney Island in 1903. Captured on film by Thomas Edison , the event was one of a string of animal electrocutions Edison staged to discredit a new form of electricity: alternating current.

What did he do to irk you?

The elephant was electrocuted. Edison Company was involved. But Edison wasn’t there filming it and cackling - he didn’t run the company by the time this happened.

Not really though.

I think they said on the Adam Buxton podcast this week that Edison was a wife beater. Can’t find anything to support this online though. Might have dreamt it.

This has absolutely done me though
