A question about elephants

We've created this area in the hope of seeing material ranging from some well-told (or well retold) jokes to original writing with a humorous slant, or anything else that might appeal to the kind of person who enjoys playing with words more than people. That probably means someone like yourself. N.B. -- Postings preceded by ** contain some sexual or risqué content. (Makes them easier to find.)

A question about elephants

An elephant is a rather tall animal. How do you get down off an elephant?

Silly wabbit: you don't get down off an elephant; you get down off a duck!

A man was sprinkling grey powder on the freeway. A highway patrolman stopped and asked him, "why are you doing that?"
"It's to keep the elephants off the freeway," he said.
"There aren't any elephants on the freeway," the cop replied.
"Works great dunnit" says the man.

OK, you can blame Meirav for starting an elephant joke thread, not me for adding to it! I'll warn you . . . these are REALLY bad:

Q. What's the difference between an elephant and a plum?

A. Their color!



Q. What are the similarities between an elephant and a plum?

A. They're both purple, except for the elephant!



Q. What did Tarzan say when he saw the elephants coming down the path?

A. "Here come the elephants."



Q. What did Jane say when she saw the elephants coming down the path?

A. "Here come the plums." (Jane is color-blind.)

Hey, I warned you!

Allen, thank you so much - I'd heard those jokes decades ago and couldn't remember how they went!

And Pete's post reminds me of another one:

Have you ever seen an elephant hiding behind a flower?
No.
He must have been hiding well then.

Which reminds me of another one:
Why do elephants paint their toenails red?
So they can hide well in a cherry tree.

Sorry...

OK. Here's my last effort.
Why do elephants paint the soles of their feet yellow?
So that they can hide upside-down in a bowl of custard.

Why did the elephant wear green sneakers?

So he could hide on a pool table!



How do you make an elephant float?

Take one elephant, then add 100 gallons of soda and 50 gallons of ice cream!

What's the difference between a post box and an elephant?

Don't know.

No use asking you to post a letter, then.
