Elephant jokes appeal to the absurd side of my sense of humor. According to Wikipedia:
An elephant joke is a joke, almost always an absurd riddle or conundrum and often a sequence of such, that involves an elephant. Elephant jokes were a fad in the 1960s, with many people constructing large numbers of them according to a set formula. Sometimes they involve parodies or puns.Elephant jokes are frequently told in groups, where each joke builds upon expectations of the previous one. And for some reason they just amuse me greatly. So I figured I'd share a few of my favorites. You will either love them or just... not understand their appeal at all. And either is a fair response.
