What did the hotel manager say to the elephant that couldn't pay his bill? 'Pack your trunk and clear out.'

Baby Elephant Playing Football

Baby elephant picture - playing football The baby elephant brings an extra dimension to football - his trunk.  Will he play better when his tusks arrive?  Or would they puncture the football? Judging by the large ears, this footballer is an African elephant.  The baby elephant playing in the water (top of page) maybe an Indian elephant, however I find it difficult to be sure because of the angle of the ears.

Elephants Playing BallBaby elephant playing ball

How Elephants Got Trunk - Kipling While this is not so funny for the baby elephant, it does reminds us of Kipling's story 'The Elephant's Child.  The classic 'Just So' story explains how the elephant got its trunk. 'Come hither, Little One,' said the Crocodile, 'for I am the Crocodile,' and he wept crocodile-tears to show it was quite true. Read more here.

Best Elephant Joke

Nick is standing at the customs desk at the ferry port with a large crate. 'Anything to declare, jewellery, alcohol, livestock?' barks the Customs officer. 'Nothing', replies Nick. The Customs officer opens the crate, and there inside is an elephant between two slices of bread. 'I thought you said no livestock?' explodes the customs officer. Nick looks at him with surprise and answers mildly, 'What's it to you what I have in my sandwiches?'

Cringing Elephant Joke

The town's bank manager called the police station to report a robbery. 'You'll never believe what happened, Sergeant. A truck backed up to my bank, the doors opened. Out comes these robbers and they lead an elephant out of the truck. The elephant then breaks through my plate glass window, sticks his trunk in, sucks up all the money. Then the gang lead the elephant back into the truck. The robbers close the truck doors and the truck pulled away.' The desk sergeant said, 'Could you tell me, for identification purposes, whether it was an African elephant or an Indian elephant?' 'How can you tell the difference?' asked the bank manager. 'Well,' said the sergeant, 'The African elephant has great big ears whereas the Indian elephant has little ears. So which kind of elephant was used in the robbery?' 'How should I know? I couldn't see his ears,' said the bank manager. 'He had a stocking over his head.'

Seeing Pink ElephantsFunny Pink Elephant

If a friend tells you they are "seeing pink elephants", then this is serious.   What it means is they are suffering delirium tremens. The condition and the accompanying hallucinations are caused by alcohol poisoning.

However, this cameraman, Mike Holding, had definitely not been drinking when he captured these photos of a pink elephant in northern Botswana, Africa. Experts believe it is probably an albino, which is an extremely rare phenomenon in African elephants. While albinism is thought to be fairly common in Asian elephants, it is much less common in the larger African species. Here we see the baby pink elephant attempting to shelter under its mother because surviving is very difficult in the harsh African bush as the glaring sun may cause blindness and skin problems.
