    Feed up, customers resort to using elephants to break down the doors to IndyMac bank, to get their money just so they can buy gas.

    Given Pres Bush's low popularity, combined with rising gas prices, and the GOP chances in the Fall, even the Republican Party's mascots decide to get out of town and hand things over to Obama and the Dems

    The elephants decide to get some exercise and walk to the circus–they need to lose some "junk in the trunk."

    After being told they would have to pitch in for gas , the elephants decided it would be cheaper to walk to the Staples Center.

    Th bad economy has reduced the circus to a couple of elephants -the rest of the animals were traded for enough gas to transport them here.

    Accusations of denial have finally forced the White House to discuss rising gas prices, and the media circus surrounding Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Due to inflation and foreclosures, the two elephants in the room had to find other suitable housing.

    Elephants are suffering from the economy too. No more "working for peanuts" they head to town to get a 'real" job. Have you seen the price of gas lately?
