That IS cool! Yay, elephants.

Uhhh..yeah. If I recieved a big posterboard with paint sloshed all over it, it would make me rethink the ivory trade too.

Someone taught my mother in law how to write? No way.

Won't they toss out the signature anyway? After all, the elephant's a minor.

"..."NABU hopes this symbolic union of man and beast will raise awareness ...."
I swear to god, the only reason it was written that way was to give some farkin' pervert a chubby ! Union of man and beast. Hey is your target readership Kentucky residents or what ?

Ugly-ass and baby elephant are mutually exclusive terms. Just ask any 4 year old.

for everyone involved in setting an animal up for a publicity stunt and bleeding-heart Reuters for reporting on it.

What is wrong with wanting an ivory chess set.

Thats nothing, my Cat can lounge around and watch TV. Beat that!

In other news, i've got nothing.

"NABU hopes this symbolic union of man and beast will raise awareness of unregulated ivory trade," the spokesman said.

I agree. We must regulate this lucrative ivory market so that we can tax it!

oh yea? i can sign my name with my left or right hand, or with a pen in my mouth or between my big toe (left foot) asnd the other toes! BEAT THAT, ELEPHANT!

elephant thought he was signing a petition for more peanuts.
2002-10-24 05:09:07 PM  
Yes. I'm sure the elephant was moved by deep feelings on the issue and a desire to promote change in the world.
2002-10-24 05:22:36 PM  
I wonder if it can do caligraphy...

I love elephants!

Big deal, Antimatter. My can can lounge around watching TV while licking his butt.

Seriously, though. My cat can actually open doors. He does this bit where he gets up to the door, stands on his hind legs, jumps up and wraps his front paws around the doorknob. He then contorts his body back and forth and kicks the door with his feet until in opens.

He especially enjoys doing this around 4 in the morning.

Stupid misleading headline. There was nothing about Rosie O'Donnell in there.

... I'm sure the elephant fully comprehends the matter of the ivory trade.

Nope. There's no such thing as an ugly-ass baby elephant.
