In honor of two of my favorite people in the entire world, my nephew Marcus, and my sister in law Louise I have developed an attraction to elephant jokes. Now mind you, unless Louise or Marcus are telling the jokes I don't usually find them all that funny. Marcus and Louise hit the aforementioned elephantine jokes out of the park, down the street, and then into the stratosphere. (That may be a slight exaggeration, but what fun would life be without exaggeration?)
So today I decided my post is dedicated to elephant jokes. If you find them boring, or cliche, or anything else that is negative I challenge you to look again, I mean, who has not at some point found the image of an enormous gray elephant painting their toenails red to hide in a strawberry patch at least slightly amusing?

OK ADMIT IT...at least one of those made you smile! Now if you could just hear them in Louise or Marcus' voice I'm certain that you would be LAUGHING OUT LOUD!!! Or better yet, LAUGHING YOUR BOTTOM OFF! (that would seem to be an extremely effective means to remove extraneous fat from one's gluteal muscles!)
So....it's a new day...none of us have EVER lived this one before (OK, unless you're stuck in some time and dimensional warp, and then you probably are delusional....call 1-800-HELP, not really I just made that number up.) Lift your head up high, tuck your gluteal muscles up, your tummy muscles in, and hold it for about 2 seconds....then forget about that exercise in futility and do something fun!!!
