I remember the satisfying mental image that materialized when I first heard someone speak of "throwing the elephant into the middle of the room". It was a combination of Dumbo's drunk hallucination and that World's Strongest Man event where they hurl beer keg shells backwards over their heads into a trailer which they must then drag the length of a football field. Last one who still has his kneecaps wins!
What sound does an elephant make? I mean, what do you CALL it?
Trumpet. Oh. Who picks these anyway?
And who thought it would be a good idea to have a mouse coerce a baby elephant to funnel beer through his nose and blow bubbles? And put it in a kid's movie, no less.
First keg stand on record. Only it was a bucket. And the subject was on his feet.
It's a wonder parents are flabbergasted at the behavior of today's college student.
Seriously. If I could blow bubbles with my nose after a few glasses of booze I'd have everything I need for a fun time at home.
It's easily been 15 year since I've seen Dumbo. After viewing this clip, I get the trumpet thing. You win this time, science. Er, beer.
Not me. The elephant. It's a freakin' weeknight! What do you take me for?
