Elephant Polo and other strange things
April 10, 2008 2:15 PM   Subscribe

Elephant Polo. Alf Leif Erickson is the Captain of the American Screw Tuskers Elephant Polo team . Alf is a retired attorney and former law professor from Florida. This alone doesn't make much of a post, but, you guessed it, there more, sometimes NSFW, inside.....

It seems that Alf retired to Bangkok and maintains a site called "Alf's Balloons", with a focus on, well, balloons, and of course corkscrews, and elephant polo.

Alf's elephant polo team seems to consist entirely of transexuals (the riders, that is, not the elephants).

Don't let the somewhat odd nature of the polo team throw you, because it doesn't really get strange (and, by the way, NSFW) until you begin to explore the inner workings of Alf's PatPong Corkscrew Club. This is no casual club, annual meetings are held, and the club, like, I assume, all corkscrew clubs, of course, its own balloon and meetings where the members sit naked on Alf's lap.

Spend some time exploring Alf's world.

and, I could have put a couple of more typos/dropped words in there, but it would have just confused things even further....

ouch

By mixing raw oysters with Cheerios you can provide yourself with a comfy snack while driving. The Cheerios allow you to grip the oyster firmly ... no slippage ... and the sticky nature of the oyster will prevent any Cheerios from dropping into your lap.

Mmm. Hmm.

Upon further exploration of this site, I am somewhat frightened of what exactly goes on in Alf's world. Besides the elephant polo, transexual friends, corkscrews, and balloons, of course.

This is the sort of thing that I love MetaFilter for. I suspect that I am going to be spending a great deal of time obsessing over Alf's obsessions for the next few days. Great post, HuronBob.

Gosh, one day I hope I'm rich and eccentric enough to ride elephants with naked trannys on my way to the antique corkscrew shop.

...elephant polo, transexual friends, corkscrews, and balloons...

Sounds like a typical day at "Focus on the Family," yeah?

Whatever floats y--

Who am I kidding, this is really weird. I'm intrigued.

If money can't buy you that, then why bother making any?

Elephant Polo is about the only Sport Scotland are any good at having won the world title in both 2005 and 2006.

I'm deeply concerned that the global decline in Western imperialism will one day render the Patpong Corkscrew Club nothing but a fond memory.

This is simply amazing stuff. Great find! Only on MeFi do you find links about ladyboy elephant polo.

This is crazy. How the fuck did you find this?

any search for ladyboy/elephant/corkscrew would have turned this up... you're just not working hard enough, ph00dz
