What do you call an elephant that does not matter?
Irrelephant

Why do elephants wear sneakers with yellow soles?
So you cannot see them when they float upside down in custard.
What did Tarzan say when he saw the elephants running through the jungle?
Here comes the elephants!

What did Tarzan say when he saw the elephants running through the jungle wearing sunglasses?
Nothing; he didnít recognize them.

THAT WAS ONE OF MINE!

So we start with-
how many elephants can you put in a mini...4..2 in the front and back.

How many giraffes?
None- it is full of elephants.

And how do you know if you have 3 elephants in your house?
By the mini with one elephant in it parked out the front.

I hope you have a nice visit, Gilmer.

I only have two childhood stuffed animals left, and one of them is an elephant.

No joke here, I thought we were being sentimental.

...something is in my eye...

When my grandfather asked if I wanted the house when he died, it was tough to say no. None of us wanted it, though. It was a great house and still in good shape. Just too much for me, and I would have had to move to Central PA. It was hard to see it for the last time, though.

What's red and white on the outside and grey on the inside?

Either Cambell's Cream of Elephant Soup or an inside out elephant.

The day was draining because it was long—but my job was babysitting.

The whole rest of the family was packing and moving stuff, including dishes and heavy furniture.

Everyone is completely exhausted.

Kathy, hope you’re feeling better after your rest, then again you’ll probably need another if you’ve been babysitting.

Have you made any of those biscuits everyone likes, lately? I can’t remeber what they’re called. xx
