I realize that Elephant Day is 7 months away, but I couldn't wait.

Wow, that article probably goes into far more detail than it needs to.

I must say though, I'm rooting for Christy and Jackson.

Elephant day just isn't the same without <IMG>. It's like, you know, seeing that band that used to be really good but now they sold out and suck big time, and a couple of dudes have left, and it turns out that they were the ones that wrote all the songs you really liked from the previous records.

Ha! Ha! It's not elephant day; it's "Gingrich Tells Dobson He's 'Sought God’s Forgiveness' [for] having an extramarital affair even as he led the charge against President Clinton over the Monica Lewinsky affair..." day!

"MASTURBATING an elephant in the cause of science isn’t an easy job."

IMG nothing, I want an MPEG.

Way TMI in the article but damn if I wasn't laughing the entire way through.

Best sentence in the article for me -
Artificially inseminating an elephant is just as messy – while a catheter is inserted into the cervix, the hapless scientist faces being pooed on
pooed on - LOL

It didn't go over so well the last time it was tried.

Looks like there's a lot of this going on. Except in this article, they refer to the masturbation as the "method."

What brand does an elephant smoke afterwards?

This compares poorly to the monkey spooge eating FPP.

And that is a very good thing.

Metafilter... Nevermind.

“When you touch an elephant there it starts to flick backwards and forwards and it’s so strong it can knock you off your feet. It’s such a strong movement.”

This makes me so happy I studied literature in college, rather than science!

When I grow up, I want to work as a fluffer for the Elephant porn industry.

Is that connected with Operation Yellow Elephant in some way?

I would advise against watching this show on your plasma.

When you have to masturbate an elephant as part of your day job, all the simple joy goes out of it.

I caught my elephant with a bootleg copy of "Dumbo" and he was so embarrased he crushed me and now I'm dead.

Yeah, this is why I became a theorist.

Jobs like these are God's punishment for making His animals extinct.

I'm probably better off because of it, but I was kinda hoping this was a one-link YouTube post.

giant condoms, flying over our heads, making cloud spotting dangerous for thousands of innocents ...

Huh. I always thought elephants came in drums.

I know I'm going to be giving a suspcious eyeballing of any Coke cans I happen to spot these next few days. i just know I'm going to think "elephant cum" when I see it.

Gah. Thanks for nothing, homunculus.

I wonder how much one gets paid to masturbate an elephant...

I'm only going to jack off this elephant once.

"One guy I know got a black eye from being hit by an elephant’s penis."

Elephants ain't got nothin' on Wookies.

“Man has created this annihilation of species; it’s up to man to use his ingenuity to save them.”

One small step for man, one giant leap for masturbation euphemisms.

"One guy I know got a black eye from being hit by an elephant’s penis" is a line that got cut from Dumbo. True story.
