Are you aware that elephants await the fall with great anticipation.
As it is a great deal easier for them, in Autumn, to get out of the trees.
Don't suppose ya mean the pink ones?!?!?!?!?
Is it to do with your name 'redmink' that you think elephants are pink? Or is it because you are looking through rose tinted glasses. You see all the elephants in our trees are grey. In fact all the real live elephants in the world are naturally grey also.
Dig a little
Dream a lot
Neither mink nor glasses.
I'm afraid this is either very British or very esoteric for me to solve! Shoulda been a ferret.
Please explain elephants in trees before my brain turns into a pretzel!
I am sure at some time you have been in your loft or basemnet and want to get to something high up so you stand on a box or crate. Well the elephant stands on a trunk to get up a tree.
Now as any experienced tree climber will tell you. Climbing up a tree is easy it is the getting down that is difficult.
So the elephant waits till autumn and floats down on a leaf.
Simple don't you think.
And too simple ... perhaps the ol' noggin is just pretzel'd permanently!!
Thanks Colin both for the answer AND an interesting visual!!!
I was a little worried that nobody would pick up on this absolutely ridiculous joke. You could say that our humour is a little different to yours.
I am glad that some of the spirit of the old forum is still live and kicking.
Did you get the elephant jokes in the US. They were mostly so ridiculous to be stupid but that is made them so funny.
EG What do you get when you cross a mouse with an elephant.
Answer:- Bloody great holes in your skirting board.
I hope you keep your sense of the ridiculous as it helps deal with the stress of modern life.
As long as you can see the funny side to things they don't seem so bad.
Dig a little
Dream a lot and keep laughing.
Worry not, Spirit is alive 'n kickin'!!!
How do you keep an Elephant from charging?:)
Take away the credit card!
,,,Except Grandpa always still called them charge cards.
