Shaken, Not Stirred


In this photo released Wednesday, August 6, an elephant relieves an itch on a small car in South Africa's Pilanesberg National Park. The two passengers in the car were shaken up but not injured.

"Elmer the Elephant had vision problems--look at his squinty eyes. He thought he had found the love of his life when he saw the large gray object, but during sex, it kept trying to move away, was unresponsive, and continued to make a honking sound. Elmer thought this might simply be coquettish for VW German female elephants."

Whaddaya mean, this isn't a caption contest? (laugh).

Heh... :)

It would make a good caption contest, wouldn't it?

"No means NO!"

I love it!

As her windows slowly began to steam up, Jetta suddenly realized this was *not* exactly what she'd had in mind ...

An elephant's faithful:
One hundred percent.

Reminds me of the old joke:

"Getting anything done in a bureaucracy is like elephant sex. It happens at a high level--it is clumsy--it is marked by much trumpeting, screaming, thrashing about, and foot-stomping--it is dangerous to innocent bystanders--it takes a couple of years to get anything done."

"Ole and Sven did a lot of hunting together. They had tied moose, deer, and bear to the fenders of their cars to get game home from the field--but when they live-trapped an elephant, it was more than they had bargained for."

It puts the Jetta on it's skin, then puts the Jetta on the ground again.

Thinking about this--Remember "Laugh-In" and "What do you get when you cross a ______with a ________?"


A circus animal that likes to invade France (AND Poland, AND Belgium, AND Africa....)

A car with a memory that never forgets.

A car that runs on biofuels, but leaves a couple of bushels of "pollution" all over the road every day.

"Hannibal's Blitzkrieg."

An elephant that burns books.

An elephant that wants to rule the world.

Unswervingly faithful to der Fuhrer--"I said what I meant, and I meant what I said--an Elephant's faithful, 100 percent."

An elephant with a menacing "Your PAPERS are in order--you may leave now."

An elephant that runs at full throttle down the autobahn.

"Cross an elephant with something German? Now we know where the idea for the SNORKEL came from!

"I don't know, but the offspring will be raised in a lebensborn program"
