"What's the difference between an elephant and a banana?"
Well, the natural response to the joke teller would be:
"I don't know. What is the difference between an elephant and a banana?"
Then this is followed by the punch line. In the case above, I have forgotten the answer, but I'm sure it's not very funny anyway, as most jokes like this are not usually very funny. However, if a person needs to ask:
"What is the difference between an elephant and a banana?"
don't you think they might be in need of some sort of psychiatric assistance? I mean, isn't the difference between an elephant and a banana strikingly obvious? For those of you who might still be uncertain on the subtle differences between the two, they are outlined below:
1. Elephant - A large animal, weighing five to six tonnes, with a height of around three metres. They inhabit the continents of Africa and Asia. Their most distinguishing feature is their trunk, a sort of long snout, created by the elongation of the upper lip and nose, which is used for gathering food and drinking.
2. Banana - A small fruit, usually around twenty to thirty centimetres long. They are yellowish in colour when ripe, although certain varieties stay green. They are usually peeled before eating, the skin may then be used for various party tricks. The fruit itself is mushy in texture and quite a pale shade of yellow.
those of you who couldn't figure out the difference are now enlightened. I
hope this valuable information comes of some use to you, the next time you are
asked the difference between an elephant and a banana. You never know. It may
be a matter of life and death, and you can think back to the time you visited
The J, and say to yourself: "It's a good thing I went to that
site, otherwise I would never have known the difference between an elephant
and a banana." Or not.
