Elephant Hockey

These elephants have a game that resembles hockey.

  • There is a stick involved. Instead of keeping your stick on the ice, it appears that you keep it on the ground.
  • The tire seems to serve as the puck.
  • Pacing is far slower than human hockey.
  • Behavior also seems less aggressive than in human hockey.

At this point, I don’t predict Elephant Hockey will become popular enough to form a league.

Salad Bar

This may be unlike any Salad Bar you’ve seen.

You first have to gather the contents and carry them to the salad bar.

Next, you add water and enjoy.

Elephant Defense

I’d never thought about elephants using a defensive strategy until I happened upon this group.

Is it just me or does this formation look like an infantry square?

Mud Bath

Have you ever had a mud bath?

The trusty internet tells me that mud baths relieve stress, soften your skin, and pull toxins out of your body.

How much mud does it take to give a mud bath to an elephant?

Lumberjack Dream

When I grow up, I want to be a lumberjack.

To practice, I’m teaching myself to do log-rolling.

My biggest challenge has been to find another elephant willing to practice with me.

Then, of course, I’ll need to move the log to water.

Hmmm. This may be more difficult than I planned.

Maybe I need a new dream.

A Log in the Trunk Dilemma

I’m not sure what to do.

I picked up a log with my trunk and was content with it until I found a much bigger log.

Now what should I do?

Isn’t there a saying about “A log in the trunk is worth two in the sand pit?”

Should I keep the one I have or drop it and try for the bigger one?

That’s what I call a dilemma.

What would you do?
