    Not only they are gas-free but they can also be taught where to pick you up on a daily basis, isn't that wonderful? Forget automated co-pilots.

    It was about time they came up with "a solid green solution" to the never ending gas crisis.

    Why did the elephants cross the road???

    You think if we asked real nice, they would let us borrow those bicycles up ahead? I've always wanted to ride one, and with gas prices as they are, it seems like a good time to learn.

    Once there was an elepump who tried to use a gas pump.
    No, no I mean an elestation who tried to use a gas station.
    Dear me. I am not certain quite, that even now I've got it right.
    How 'er it was he got his trunk entangled in the gasa pump.
    The more he tried to get it free, the higher went the gas fee~
    I fear I'd better drop the song, republicans doin' it all wrong!

    With gas prices that high, said one pachyderm to the other, it won't be long before drivers get peanuts envy. (heh heh)

    These guys balked at the 'stops gunky build-up' claims but later realized they really did have junk in the trunk.

    No one notced the elephant stampede that left most of downtown Los Angeles in shambles as they were too busy trying to fill up before regular gas prices topped the $5 per gallon mark.

    Is the GOP having their mascots siphon gas from a local gas station. We didn't see anything that discreet since Watergate.

    High gas prices cause gas theft on the rise in L.A. As Criminals are attempting to use elephants to syphon gas out of vehicles. Is there no end to what these people will try next !

    one elephant says to the other, "I know this job stinks, but things could be worse. we could be working for the republican party."
