I Am Wordless on Wednesday


Caption contest?



Fail photo?

W.T. Fuck?

Where in the hell . . . ?

What is the elephant thinking?

What is the elephant drinking?

I don’t know. It’s up to you. Just be gentle. The nice lady in the photo is my beloved aunt.

    I think the the whole thing is pretty cool myself…

    The elephant is thinking:

    How did I end up in a parking lot, wearing sunglasses and drinking a martini with a suspicious red blob in it (a giant cherry?) while beloved old ladies fondle my tusks? And why in the hell am I PINK? Man, last night must have been one crazy party.

    I find the pinkness of the elephant distressingly faux-penile/dildoesque. Am I the only one?

    Nice lady in the photo: Don’t you think you’ve had enough…

    Pink Elephant: I”ll hell you when I tad enoub!

    I think that’s the same pink elephant I see chilling out in the corner of my room at random times during a hot summers night. He always seemed a bit anti social to me, so maybe that’s his cousin or somethin’.

    OMG!! I totally want that elephant! I will even take the martini too. I have held a long term grudge about being denied wild animals as a child. I knew we had a big enough yard for them. I wanted an elephant and a koala. We had eucalyptus in our yard and koala eat the leaves. I still have a huge crush on elephants, my husband knows if there is any way possible for me to get one, I will have one! dammit!

    where is that darling elephant??

    No, putting on sunglasses will not make a giant pink elephant less conspicuous, but if you finish that martini it shouldn’t matter.

    I think the elephant looks kind of stupefied by the martini. Of course, I would probably be kind of bewildered if someone brought me a drink as big as my leg, too.

    Shieldmaiden96… I think it might be the veins throwing you off. Oy.

    There’s already several good ones. I especially thought DCR’s was clever.

    I’ll have to get back to you on this later…

    From the corner of his eye I can tell he is thinking I really just want that cherry. I can do without the glass but, if I move the wronge way my shades might fall off and it’s to bright for all that. Oh, by the way who’s the lady standing next to me does she like me and want to take me home as her pet?

    Hi there, elephant
    What cool sunglasses you have
    Are you drinking wine?


    What is it drinking?
    Some sort of elephant drink?
    Can I have some?


    The pink elephant
    Has two red cars on it’s feet
    Don’t you find that strange?

    Pink elephant. Who!?

    Well, that’s all for now. :)

    All I can think of when I see that glass is the cheesy hot tub my husband I and lounged in at a Pocono resort called Champagne Towers. Yep. The hot tub was the top of a giant glass in the room. The stem was on the first floor and you entered the tub on the second floor.

    Oh, and what Shieldmaiden said.

    I would say thank you for doing that for me, only I’m wordless. Oh, wait, you did that for me, right? LOL!

    I second the vote for DCR’s comment.

    CB Jones also made me chuckle.

    I think it is against the law to drink and drive. Even if you are an elephant.

    Grace: That is a perfectly appropriate response.

    Ilana: HA! I do wonder how many beloved old ladies fondle that poor elephant’s tusks per year. And what can he do about it?

    Shieldmaiden96: No. No, you’re not. I’m just wondering why? Why choose Dildo Pink for your giant elephant? There are plenty of other shades, like Seashell Pink, Rose Pink, or Pink Lemonade Pink.

    C.B. Jones: There’s probably more than one. I’ve seen him in my backyard, at twilight, kind of floating over the grass. But never my aunt.

    Puglette: Isn’t he awesome! I love that you had/have such a fierce love for wild creatures, especially the noble elephant. (You should read “Elephanta Suite” by Paul Theroux, especially the third story.) This fine elephant can be found in Springfield, IL!

    Tying trout flies: True. A martini of that size will either make you forget about the pink elephant or turn you into a pink elephant.

    dcr: HA! Very true. No matter where they pop up, the giant elephant is ignored.

    Stephanie: Heeeee! Good one. I was trying to think of TV/movie characters who perpetually had a martini glass in hand. Of course! Mr. Howell. Or was it a coconut?

    janine: You know she just might enjoy a tipple now and then. But only in public, in broad daylight, and with a giant pink elephant.

    absepa: He does have a funny eyeball. He’d probably prefer a giant peanut, after all.

    Jeff: Ew! Veins? That’s quite enough out of you, sir.

    Regan: Very, very good! I love the idea of the elephant heading the gay elephant pride parade! (wishes desperately there were such a thing) And the haiku are awesome. THANK YOU FOR PARTICIPATING!

    unfinishedrambler: That brought tears to my eyes. So eloquent. So heartfelt. But, hey! Who said anything about short notice? You’ve got WEEKS to come up with something else.

    babs – beetle: HAR! Yeah, it does need some assistance, poor thing. My aunt seems more concerned about getting a beauty shot.

    Kathy: Oh, man. I would LOVE to check out that cheesy hot tub! What would’ve been really cool is if the stem was actually the elevator and it shot you right up into the glass. But then you’d have to wear some kind of scuba gear, I suppose.

    Jay: I’m seldom wordless on ANY day, but this week I am just too busy to do much of anything for anyone but . . . be wordless.

    dcr: HA! You’re on a roll!!! How awesome would a pink Trojan Elephant have been, tho?

    Brit!: Yes, we’ve got some funny commenters here. Just the way I like ‘em.

    Daisy the Curly Cat: Uh oh. What if someone just pulls him around on his little wagon thingie? I’d hate to see my state’s capital destroyed by a drunken pink elephant.

    Musingwoman: I think if this were a contest, dcr would be the winner. Tho Regan’s haiku were pretty good, too.

    I understand there’s long been one such over in McGregor, Iowa by a bar known as “the Pink Elephant.”

    (I believe the same is now used by the Isle of Capri Casino there.)

    Well, you can tell how drunk he is: he has to be wheeled around.

    The realistic pink wrinkles kinda freak me out.

    Maybe the pink elephant is the result of the giant martini. I would probably see him in my living room if I were to drink a martini that size.

    Lola: Especiallypink elephants.

    Canucklehead: Ah, how profound. I think I might need a giant martini after that.

    Luna: HA! SPF 10 NEVER does squat! At least not on fair-skinned elephants.

    Florida Girl In Sydney: Oh, naughty! But thanks for asking what we were all thinking.

    The Exaggerator: I found Pinky in Marquette, IA, and more photos here. Pink elephants everywhere!

    kathcom: Yeah, we wouldn’t want him stomping around on his own. Wrinkles? YES! Wrinkles, not veins. Phew.

    Anne: I’d be interested to see if wherever you put a giant martini, a pink elephant would magically appear. It’s worth trying.

    “What elephant?”
    “How do you know if an elephant has been drinking?”
    (beats the hell out of me…)

    I love pink elephants! Maybe that’s because I’m drunk all the time.

    Addiction: That elephant is deep, man. I would never have ascribed all those thoughts to his tiny elephant brain. Good job!

    Jenn Thorson: HA! That really doesn’t even sound very far-fetched. And surely there MUST be a drink out there called a Pink Elephant.

    PowersTwinB: If you don’t see an elephant, then you need a bigger martini.

    Corrina: Maybe! I think only very special drunk people get to see them, tho.

    Canucklehead: I bow to your haiku prowess. Sir, you are unmatched.

    Pricilla: Heh. I hope the glasses help him maintain anonymity!
