If it isn't one of those "caught with rare species in the pants" type of stories, I ain't reading.

brantgoose: Movie pitch

An elephant boy in India or somewhere Americans may have heard of decides to try to save his elephant by smuggling it into the United States.

This turns out to be surprisingly easy.

Once there, the elephant plays Curious George and gets into all kinds of thing, including the Room. It is immediately made President of the United States because it is the smartest person in the Room.

This could really be a movie. It could be the feel-good movie of the year. Let's say 2025.

If you're going to smuggle why would you pick such a large animal? Almost every other animal would be easier but these geniuses decide to smuggle f*cking elephants

I think the bigger issue are the economic disparities that lead many elephants into a life of smuggling.

Is that an elephant in your pants or are your testicles swollen, Nicki Minaj's cousin?

Because other smaller animals are exactly what the authorities will be looking for!  Obviously!  Nobody is inspecting people's luggage for elephants. So, you can just walk right on in with a couple of pachyderms hidden away.  It's genius!

I am not married to the USA. Europe or Canada Australia or New Zealand  or the UK would also work, only they probably have lots of elephants by now.

I will entertain offers from joint Canada-UK-France-Australia producers. Heck, New Zealand, call me.

MillionDollarMo: He was too big, so I sent him back.


A chance to recall an old poe of mine:

The cow says moo
The duck says quak
The dog said meow
So we sent him back.

There was a Farker called the Dog says Meow about that time. I wonder, but why wonder, it's Fark. Cause and effect are very confusing.
