"Apartment drinking water tainted by corpse"

"More than 500 residents in an apartment building in Yungho City, suburban Taipei, were reportedly drinking water from a communal roof-top tank containing a corpse for three days until yesterday.

"The residents had been puzzling over their water having a strange smell. When they checked the tank they found the body of a 27-year-old drug addict identified only as "Kuo" who lived in the building.

Yesterday, television reports said doctors were checking residents and also people involved with a restaurant on the ground floor which had used the polluted water to wash rice, meat and vegetables.

After the body was found yesterday, health workers disinfected the water tank, but residents have shied from drinking the running water, hauling water in buckets from a nearby building instead."
My question is: Would Mufasa still consider this the Circle of Life? 'Cause this still falls under that whole, "...and the antelope eat the grass, and so..." monologue he gave Simba. And if this doesn't fall under that rule, then he's lying. A lyin' Lion. HA! Get it? Because they sound the same.

Anyway. Drinking water in Taipei. Crossing that off my list.
