Rusty: Hey, Micah, where would you find an elephant?
Micah: I don't know. Perhaps Jan could tell you, although I doubt it. She can't remember where to find the checkbook.
Rusty: Checkbook - is Jan planning to buy an elephant?
Micah: Not that I know of, but she just might if there's a good sale.
Rusty: But where would you find an elephant?
Micah: Possibly on Amazon. Amazon sells just about everything.
Rusty: I don't want to buy one. I'm asking where would you find an elephant?
Micah: I wouldn't. I don't want one.
Rusty: You don't have to want one. I'm trying to tell a joke.
Micah: Okay, so where would I find an elephant?
Rusty: You don't have to find elephants; they're too big to lose.
Micah: That's it? That's your joke? What brought this on?
Rusty: Last month we published a zebra joke post and The Poodle and Dog blog asked if we have an elephant joke.
Micah: And that's the best you can muster?
Rusty: Well, I could ask why elephants have short tails.
Micah: What do you mean by short tails - short for an elephant or short for a dog?
Rusty: There is no dog in this joke.
Micah: Don't get upset. I was just asking.
Rusty: Okay, why do elephants have short tails for elephants?
Micah: I give up.
Rusty: Because they can't remember long stories.
Micah: I thought elephants have a long memory.
Rusty: They do, and so do I. You just ruined two of my jokes.
Micah: Does this mean you won't play second banana when I want to tell a joke?
Rusty: What do you think?
