"Escaped elephant takes a stroll through Wisconsin neighborhood."

"Jaime Lynn, a Baraboo, Wisconsin resident... said she heard a dog barking and a neighbor scream, so she looked outside to see what was going on."

Baraboo is home of Circus World, so it can't have seemed that weird.

"Sheriff, some strange big grey animal wandered into my garden, and picked up a cabbage with its tail."
"What's it doing now ? "
"Sheriff, if I told you, you wouldn't believe me."

Q: Why did the elephant paint its fingernails red?
A: So it could hide in a cherry tree.

The MSM, Democrats and GOP Establishment all ignored the elephant standing in the middle of the room.

The Tea Party was a warning. Trump is a first step. Hopefully the idiots are listening now.

If it were a rescued baby deer at a registered shelter, the police in Wisconsin would have to shoot it.

Reminds me of Jumanji. I think I was one of 12 people to watch that movie...

What is the only difference between elephants and grapes?

Their color.

What did the colorblind man say when he saw a herd of elephants?

Here come the grapes!

If the woozles show up to join the ephelumps then we are really in trouble.

Look for them to appear in one-zles and two-zles.

Not hardly.

So we get the local take on the escaped elephant but not on the UW-M hiring practices?

Disappointing. You've resisted talking directly about UW-M but your retirement changes the reasonableness of that decision.

And by the way did UW grant Emeritus status? You're sill listed as a professor but not emeritus, who does their web updates anyway? What is this 1996?

A report on my local (Boston, MA) television station said the elephant "snuck" out.

What's the excitement about? Just another Wisconsin locavore.

Damn fine story, elephant escapes. Can anyone find Kinsey's published opinion that the all-time greatest headline would be "Gorilla Escapes From Zoo"?

Anywhere else and they just would have shot her.
