I bought my friend an elephant for his room
I bought my friend an elephant for his room...
This is nominally an elephant joke, but it is really a joke about English. To explain the humor, I will first explain the phrase "elephant in the room". The phrase is used when there is something (the elephant) that is obvious to everyone, but that no-one wants to talk about.
He said "Thanks!"
I said "Don't mention it."
The joke, then is that the elephant that he bought for his friend is an idiomatic elephant in the room as well.
Thanks this was help but I still do not entirely get the jokeReplyDelete
Sorry - I'll re-explain it in a post this week, and link it here after I do.Delete
