The Story of the Blue Elephant

Kevin just wrote me to tell me that he was bored. He requested a story about a monkey. He got one.

And in case YOU'RE bored at work too, here y'go:

Once upon a time, there was a blue elephant. All the other elephants
made fun of him for being blue. Hence he was a sad and disconsolate
elephant.

He hung back from the . . . er, pack of elephants. Whatever a group
of elephants is called. If you've ever watched the Discovery
channel, you know that elephants have to trek to the mountains every
dry season to eat the trees that are still around. The bleu elephant
was weak and sad, though, and it didn't look he was going to make it
to the mountain. He sat down under a tree, and watched his family
grow smaller and smaller as they continued on without him.

Then the next morning he was awokened by a monkey, and HE was bright
blue! The monkey said, "yo dawg, what's up? Shouldn't you be
heading to the mountain?"

"Alas, my family has left me. For I am blue, and they make fun of me
and don't trust me and think that I don't belong. So I'm just going
to sit beneath this tree until I waste away. I imagine you have the
same problem I have, right, Blue Monkey?"

"Oh hells no! We monkeys are a silly bunch. Everybody LOVES that I
came out blue! I'm the most popular monkey in my . . . er . . . pack!
Shit, man, I'll get you some water, you can chill with us! They'll
LOVE you!"

So the elephant was happy. The blue monkey brought him some water,
and he was refreshed; and he went to live with the monkeys, and was
very popular and well-liked.

The end.
