Hold on. Is it just me or WHERE IT THE REST OF THAT ELEPHANT?

Shipped separately is my guess. And wouldn't that be a sight?

The elephant head freaks me out. Somehow it seems more disrespectful than a deer head or a boar head. Is it because it's so big or because they cry?

downtown guy said...

Both. Have you ever seen an elephant nurse her baby?

Ms. Moon said...

Or mourn their dead?

There's a big ol' brain in that head. Just no thumbs on them feet.
