My Favorite Elephant Jokes

My favorite elephant jokes come from the 1960s, when they first came out. Okay, so they’re dated. But grandkids love them because the jokes are short, always start with a question, and bring an absurd image to mind. I like them because they’re wholesome and funny. So if you want to hear kids laugh, try telling them some of these.
