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?


Elephants are herbivores.

What Next?

I once had a dog that ate an elephant, the dog was quite large.
Jan 03, 2005

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!

If the people were in SE Asia they probably would have ate the dog themselves.

Mar 24, 2005

i must be stupid too cause i 4got that elephants are herbivores
Mar 26, 2005

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 always wanted a pet elephant tho...

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
May 10, 2005

That was one that I got right away
Jun 13, 2005

and you dont need to make mean comments
Jun 15, 2005

JEEZ! I never realized it was that simple. Well, you can all do this to me
Jun 16, 2005

at first i figured the answer would be more complex!

but that was a common sence answer
Jul 08, 2005

I got the answer the second it said that the elephant ate the dog!
Aug 12, 2005

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.
Sep 30, 2005

Pretty cute teaser, easy but still fun. Keep them coming.
Oct 11, 2005

Well if he thinks elephants eat dogs i hope he left cause it just might eat him next.
