The Victorious Elephant

Life in the African bush is never dull and this story captures this rather well...

A visiting doctor, working at our local clinic in the South Luangwa, admitted a lady who had broken her arm and a few ribs. When asked what had happened, she burst out laughing and said she was so sick of elephants eating her vegetables she ran into the garden stark naked and hit one on the head with her frying pan… whereupon he bashed her one and continued to enjoy eating his supper!

The lady recovered well and, much to her delight, became rather famous in the village for this daring act.
