Genetic Experts wanted. We’ve got plans.

We were watching a commercial the other day which featured this dairy addicted elephant. Have you seen it? The kid drops some milk on the floor and an elephant comes charging to lap it up.


It’s a commercial for paper towels, however, it’s not a great commercial because I have no clue what paper towel I should buy to keep the elephant in business.

At the end of the commercial a little cartoon elephant comes trotting out.

I lost it.

Me: Oh my GOODNESS! That elephant is so cute! I LOVE ELEPHANTS!

Mark: Elephants are pretty cute.

Me: Yeah, especially that little cartoon elephant. Oh, I want one SO BAD!

Mark: A mini elephant, huh? I bet someone would make a lot of money if they could make a mini elephant. People would eat that stuff up.

Me: Me! Me! I’d eat it up! AND you could save the environment by riding your elephant to work! This is SUCH an awesome idea.

At this point Mark looks at me like I’ve lost my mind. Like what I just said in the middle of a conversation about shrinking elephants was just flat out odd.

Mark: What are you talking about? The mini elephants would be too small to ride. Duh.

Oh, sorry, didn’t realize there were rules about mini elephants. My bad.

Me: Oh. So you’re talking MINI mini elephants. Like the size of Nala.

Mark: Exactly.

Me: Brilliant.

We’re serious about this guys. So if anyone is a genetic manipulator expert in their spare time give me a shout. We’ve got a prototype…

Nala the Elephant

  1. you 2 are crazy. crazy. crazy. and i love that you consistently make me laugh. πŸ™‚

    Ha, I’m glad to know that I can put a smile on your face. How many mini-elephants should I sign you guys up for? They get along marvelously with cute puppies πŸ˜€

    LOL!!!! So funny!! I love elephants and the idea of a little elephant. I was thinking bigger than Nala but smaller than a normal elephant. More like a baby elephant size…but that’s be the size of a little adult elephant. So cute!

    I know the commercial you are talking about but don’t know which brand they are advertising either.

    Do I get to see you this weekend? (Please say yes! Please say yes!)

    Right? Not a good sign that we can’t help the elephant paper towel people out. And that’s the size I was thinking, too… like a pony or something. But Mark says we’re wrong… πŸ˜€

    No Way girl, you must of gotten up on the funny side of the bed. I keep reading you just to see where you will go next. I bet you keep Mark hopping trying to figure out what you will do or say next. I love the pic of Nala, that is a mini elephant you could make a fortune selling. Her eyes say buy me and love me please!!!!

    We are such weirdos, huh? And Mark is in a constant state of eye rolling when I start acting silly… but he likes it. Well, I don’t know if he LIKES it, but he sticks around so that’s good enough for me πŸ˜€ And Nala as an elephant is just too cute, right?

    I collect elephants (they are all over my house) and would love to have a mini elephant. Make it happen. Thank you.

    How funny! I’ve always been more of a penguin person myself, but I’m so loving the mini-elephant idea. I mean, Paris Hilton thinks she’s cute with those chihuahuas? She’d have nothing on us with our elephants πŸ˜€
