There's something we need to talk about......
Your elephant didn't intrigue me as much as the query about PIN numbers! Why didn't I think of that? Now I feel VERY insecure!
Have I missed something? What's the problem?
I'm still trying to work out how a bowl of golfish turned into a pachyderm...
J . . . you must be the only blogger in blogland who saw the goldfish before I removed it for revision. Watch this space.Fran . . I don't know what the problem is, but those guys round the conference table are behaving like there's an elephant in the roomR.R It's the innovation of "Chip and PIN" that scares me. Makes it easier for the bank/credit card etc to say "You MUST HAVE given your PIN number to someone, or written it down somewhere" In my view . . that is why Chip and PIN was introduced.Deborah . . please don't scare me like this! Are you taking about talking about elephants or Beethoven in Fancy Dress.
But the goldfish are on my Reading List which appears every time I open Dashboard? I'd have thought lots of bloggers would have seen them - they are still there, even as I type...
You're probably a better blogger as well as a better blooger, innit?
Jinksy . . you're a better blooger than I am. I assumed that if I deleted the post from the blog, no one could see it, even from a reading list . . . .
Oh don't worry, Dr. Elephants, elephants. Everybody's talking about them, it seems.
And Jinksy is right, as usual. You might think you can delete a post but you can never ever delete a title!
Good - Does that mean I will remain Her Imperial Highness long after I quit this mortal coil, Deb?
Her Impish Highness, more like it!
Ladies . . . don't we have eMail or Twitter for this sort of banter? What about the elephants?
Sorry, sorry. We got off topic, Dr.! But...what elephant?
Doesn't everybody ask an elephant to breakfast at Easter?
It's not REALLY an elephant, ladies! I was just kidding you. What it is, it's a status symbol electric fan. When the discussion gets heated the Chairperson flicks a hidden switch and the "elephant" - which is really a mechanical contrivance wearing Simulated Pachyderm fabric - flaps its ears. Obvious really. The roomcoolers made in Africa are more efficient, having much larger ears than the Indian models. But malfunctions have been known to wreck Conference Suites. The fiendish Japanese are working on a robot version which you can activate from your howdah via GPS when you're stuck in the rush hour Elephant Jam, so your flat is pleasantly cool when you get home.
Now, if this had appeared on 1st April, I may not have believed it- wouldn't that have been a pity?Appropriately enough, word verification is 'whings'!
Ahhhhhh the elephant in the room - great post for discussion.....:-) Hugs
Love it I want one in my room!
Von - you must live in a LARGE house...
So glad you cleared that up for us. Brilliant idea, really. Hope they have lots of paperweights.
Deb- You've just reminded me of the plethora of paperweights I used to use at work in similar circumstances...though in our office, the fans looked like fans, sadly no Jumbos.
Now I suppose we've reached the point in the debate when it's time to start the elephant jokes . . ?Like . . How do you get two elephants into a Mini? OMG . .One in the front seats, the other in the back.Obvious, really . . .
You mean something like:-How did the elephant lose his memory?Couldn't remember where he put it?
Try as I may, I really can't see an elephant in that picture.Should have gone to Specsavers!
Hi Victor . . I'm beginning to think you're right! Sometimes when I look at the picture, the elephant comes and goes, Strange!
Thank you for stopping by. To make life easier for you I have turned off the new indecipherable and time-wasting verification words. Would you care to "feedback" to Blogger and complain about them, like I did?
