PostHeaderIcon Elephant tricks!

Charles was working for many years as the elephant trainer in a local Circus. Then after a few rough years, he was allowed to go with a thank you, one of the elephants and a few bails of hay when the Circus went bust.

Feeling rather depressed he got to wondering how he was going to survive with only an elephant and no career any more. Then he remembered his days in the Circus and realised he was onto a good thing.

In all his years in the Circus, he had trained elephants to lift one leg off the ground, lift two legs off the ground and even lift three legs off the ground but NEVER had he seen four legs off the ground at once.

Near and far he advertised, $1 to try, win $1000 if you can make the elephant lift 4 legs off the ground at once.

People came from near and far to try and Charles was raking the money and had made about $700 when one day a fellow arrived in a red convertible.

He asked about the rules of the contest and paid his money. He walked back to the car, took out a baseball bat, walked to the front of the elephant, looked him in the eye long and hard. Then he walked around the back of the elephant, took a mighty swing and struck the animal in the testicles.

At once the elephant leapt into the air and Charles was down $1000 and feeling “very” sorry for himself.

Then he remembered his days at the Circus and in all his days he had never seen an elephant move his head side to side. Up and down he had seen, round and round he had seen but NEVER side to side. Near and far he advertised, $1 to try, win $1000 if you can make the elephant move his head side to side.

People came from near and far to try and Charles was raking the money when one day a fellow arrived in a red convertible. Again he asked the rules and walked to his car.

He returned with a baseball bat, walked to the front of the elephant and looked the animal in the eye long and hard and said, “You remember me, don’t you?”.

The elephant nodded. “You remember what I did to you?” The elephant nodded.

“You remember the PAIN?” The elephant nodded. “Do you want me to do it again?”
