Elephant Jokes


When I was very young, everyone was telling elephant jokes and I didn't GET them! They weren't funny, simply absurd and I was still a few years away from knowing what that word even meant! It was a huge fad that burned briefly and thankfully has never been revived. Here from the pages of the February, 1964 issue of Harvey Kurtzman's HELP! (Associate Editor Terry Gilliam), we present a selection of "classic" elephant jokes. For further reading on this particular craze, we refer you to Elephant joke - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Let's not revive that. The craze was over by the time I was hearing them. Even when I did get the jokes they weren't funny.
