  1. Triumph says:

    While the two people sitting on the couch may look calm, they could be the next victims on what Bush calls “the war on terror.” For Bush, this means that he could kidnap these two people, take them to an undisclosed location, have them tortured, and forbid them access to lawyers and the courts.

  2. Anderson says:

    Bush: “Some have said that there is no elephant in the room. But our resolve to defeat the elephant is undiminished.”

  3. A GOP tribute to Fashion Week

  4. FreakyBoy says:

    The DNC frat loft reaches a new low in immaturity by stealing the home team’s mascot before the big game.

  5. the Pirate says:

    “How to make PeTA shit a brick.”

  6. the Pirate says:

    “Log Cabin Republicans unveil their new mascot.”

  7. not unlike Andrew Sullivan

  8. The problem isn’t painting them, the problem is house training them.

  9. Me thinks someone has a wee bit to much time on their hands.

  10. I’ll never forget this.

  11. A former star in the Tarzan movies, Tai was now reduced to giving lap dances to Hollywood stars who wanted to mock the republicans.

  12. If you think Hollywood is eccentric, try Bollywood.

  13. This is just impractical. He paints the elephant to match the wallpaper (see the back wall on the right) which is likely to be changed. He should have painted it to match the brick which can last forever.

  14. I got the idea from watching the new Pink Panther movie.

  15. Why the NYT view of republicans just doesn’t match reality.

  16. This morning I woke up and shot an elephant in my pajamas. How it got into my pajamas I’ll never know.

  17. Just ignore him and he’ll go away.

  18. What, no roller skates?

  19. Loft apartment with view. Perfect for large pets.

  20. 1) The fact that it was painted the color of the wallpaper couldn’t hide the elphant in the corner, and at some point, Frank was going to have to discuss it.

    2) Dude, if that thing craps on my carpet one more time…

  21. FormerHostage says:

    “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” jumps the shark.

  22. FormerHostage says:

    It’s still better than those d@mn plastic pink flamingos!

  23. FormerHostage says:

    The ruined carpet was the least of their worries when Fred, unaware that the elephant was hard of hearing, commanded it to “Sit!”

  24. FormerHostage says:

    “I know it’s ridiculous Martha, but I can’t help the feeling that we’re being watched!”

  25. Maggie says:

    Animal Planet promotes its newest show: Queer Pachyderm for the Gay Guys.

  26. FormerHostage says:

    Mad with power, Dr. Bob brought out his latest genetic experiment – the chameleon pachyderm!

  27. Rachel Edith says:

    The Republicans have created a new look to go with their unpopular old policies.

  28. It is getting increasingly difficult for the Mainstream Media to not notice the Islamofacist elephant in the middle of the room, but somehow they still manage.

  29. “Well it does on occasion smash a lamp or a table accidentally, but it has the most beautiful dung!”

  30. “Exnay on the Umboday. He really doesn’t like that.”

  31. “Damn, the circus ran away and joined me.”

  32. Tai seized the opportunity he had been waiting for as Spain banished models from the runways for being too thin.

  33. Rodney Dill says:

    James and Kimberly have packed their trunks and are on the move.

  34. “Hey Blanksy, nice paint job. Perhaps you’d like to join me in singing my favorite Led Zeppelin song — Trampled Underfoot.”

  35. “This is not an elephant.” — Rene Magritte

  36. These Angry Left talking points disguised as caption contest entries are just freakin’ hilarious, though, as noted previously, not for the reasons they imagine. They remind me of the Reverend Jesse Jackson hosting the faux game show “The Question is Moot” on Saturday Night Live back in 1984 (Orwellinan shudder). Incidentally, this isn’t a caption contest entry, just an observation.

  37. FreakyBoy says:

    (Charles Austin: I knda’ think the talking points disguised as caption contest entries add a new twist to the fun. So, here I go.)

    Enraged that they can’t get married because the fundi Bush rethuglican regime wants to kill all homosexuals, Bob & Clay make a fabulous politcal statement via “art”: by tormenting an endangered species and clogging it’s pores with paint.

  38. Rodney Dill says:

  42. What good is a photo id if this painted elephant tries to vote?

  43. The Cal-Berkely Student Group People’s Liberation committee preapres to defeat the new border fence approved by the House yesterday by any means necessary. The use of a “red state” elephant was deemed hilariously ironic in a voice vote.

  44. Inflamed pachydermititis.

  45. J.K. Rowling is going to be pissed when she discovers you’ve published the cover of the final Harry Potter book!

  46. And should we have to engage in another correction regarding the proper terminology of a group of elephants; even though one elephant is a pachyderm, more than one elephant is a herd, not a pack.

  47. Not even a weird syncretic amalgamation of candomble, voodoo, and East Asian mysticism could save the DNC this time.

  48. Ce n’est pas un éléphant. — René Magritte

    3. It was at this point all involved realized that an elephant just could not pull it off.

    4. It was years before the administration realized why they failed to gain Canada’s support in Operation Iraqi Freedom.

  57. Hodink says:

    “I’m just saying that when he takes a dump, you, Mr. Oh-It-Will-Be-So-Hilarious, will become Mr. Martha Stewart-On-Hands-And-Knees.”

  58. Ray says:

    Nature Imitates Art!

    We really need to talk to your mother about her choice of gifts

    Lord Melchett: “As you say, Majesty, there were these magnificent orange elephants which were coming…”

  71. Mr. Right says:

    1.) Looks like Senator Kennedy’s been drinking again…

    2.) Unfortunately for the unsuspecting “pet” owners, “Operation Dumbo Droppings” was about to commence!
