Elton! Hop!


In Canada, to win tickets to an Elton John contest, Brandy Elliott collected 38,000 grasshoppers. A local radio station started the competition when a grasshopper invasion upset Canada's farmland. Ms. Elliott's comment: "All I kept thinking is, is this enough?" She only won by 6,000 grasshoppers.
