Paddy and Murphy meet at the supermarket and Paddy says, “Hey, man! How have you been?”
“Oh, great,” says Murphy
“I have recently bought an elephant.”
“An elephant? Are you serious?” asks Paddy.
The kids love him, he’s their best friend
They call him Mr Trunks
He washes my car with his trunk
I don’t need to cut my lawn anymore, he grazes down all the grass
Such low maintenance
My wife is so happy.”
“Oh man, that sounds amazing
I wish I had an elephant.” says Paddy.
“Whatd’ya know, he’s for sale
I got him for 30 grand but seeing it’s you, you can have him for 20.”
“Excellent, it’s a deal.”
Weeks go by and they meet again.
“Hey man, how are you doing?”
“What the hell is wrong with that bast..
elephant?? He sh..
all over my garden, I spend hours every day shovelling! The kids are terrified of him, and my wife is divorcing me!”
“Aww, that’s not a nice way to talk about Mr Trunks
You won’t be able to sell him that way!”
