Phillip's Phunnies - Elephant Jokes

A merry heart does good, like medicine... - Proverbs 17:22

What are "elephant jokes"? Elephant jokes are jokes, riddles, or absurd stories that involve elephants. They started in Texas in the 1960s and I started telling them in the 1980s while in junior high school. They are a favorite of mine and have proven to be great fun, especially around people who are too serious.

So this week our Phunnies are Elephant Jokes:

It was a boring Sunday afternoon in the jungle so the Elephants decided to challenge the Ants to a game of soccer (Football to my international readers). The game was going well with the Elephants beating the Ants two goals to nil, when the Ants gained posession. The Ants' star player was dribbling the ball towards the Elephants' goal when the Elephants' left back came lumbering towards him. The elephant trod on the little ant, killing him instantly. The referee stopped the game. "What do you think you're doing? Do you call that sportsmanship, killing another player?" The elephant replied, "Well, I didn't mean to kill him -- I was just trying to trip him up."
