Elephant in the Room

For Pondering:

I received so many clever responses to last week’s post that I must share a few. 

There were 15 variations of “the elephant in the room”:

“Ignoring the elephant in the room never stops the elephant from destroying the room.”

“Elephant in the room? What elephant?”

And from the far corners of the obtuse mind:

“These tables are not the right distance apart for social distancing!”

“It’s National Take An Elephant To Lunch Day.”

And one response suggested a political commentary on the upcoming Republican National Convention, which would be politically incorrect of me to share. ; )

During these serious and challenging times, it is good to discover within this online community a pandemic of humor and clever thinking. Thank you for sharing.
