We stopped the other day to ask for directions to the nearest diner. I had this urge to eat pecan pancakes and Mr. C. Cow wanted a cup of joe. We saw a few animals kinda standing around talking so we stopped the camper and asked a lovely painted elephant for directions.
This turned out to be the wrong individual to ask for directions. The elephant only seemed to talk in elephant jokes. We asked where the nearest diner was and they would answer with:
What’s grey and moves at 100 miles per hour? A Jet Propelled Elephant!
We’d try again by asking if they knew where the best cup of coffee could be found. Our Answer:
What do you get when you cross an elephant with a dairy cow? Peanut Butter!
Mr. C. Cow really appreciated the peanut butter joke. He can’t help but be amused when someone involves cows in humor. I was starting to get a tad bit annoyed at the lack of diner answers. I did notice that, for some strange reason, there was a REALLY ANGRY looking goat standing on top of the elephant. Maybe they also didn’t appreciate all of the jokes.
Finally we settled on asking a nice water buffalo where the closest diner was. A right. A left. Just past the billboard asking for road safety.
I wonder why the elephant was only answering in elephant related jokes. Why was there a goat standing on it’s booty? Was the water buffalo with the elephant? I’m too hungry to answer these questions!
