One day, a man in Southern Asia came home, knowing that he left his elephant home unattended, to find his neighbor complaining that his elephant killed his neighbor's dog, and ate it. "You should feed your elephant better," he said. "Your elephant ate my dog!"

The man took one look at the man and said: "You are lying."



How did he know?


Answer

Elephants are herbivores.

Duh! So who doesn't know that elephants are herbivores? How could the neighbor be so stupid as to accuse the elephant? BTW - How do you eat an elephant?

Easy - one bite at a time!

Cute one. I got it right off but enjoyed it just the same.

to runscapekiller: An herbivore does not eat meat (that would be a carnivore). Herbivores only eat green leafy food (somewhat like a vegetarian.) Think of an elephant as a really large salad eater!

I don't know if anyone will see this comment because it is almost the end of April and the last comment was in March, but there were a lot of mean comments on this one. I figured it was a joke, and lots of things happen in a joke that don't in real life...for example, animals talking to eachother, or walking into a bar for that matter I thought it was very cute

Well I imagine that an elephant would eat just about anything if it was hungry! Okay okay I am just kidding. I thought that it was a cute teaser.
