Here’s an old, but still useful, article on war elephants, courtesy of the History of the Ancient World blog/news forum. I always feel that “elephant” is a funny word. In fact, I recall this really, really old joke book on elephants, called, appropriately enough, the “elephant joke book.” Silliest jokes you’ve ever heard, but some were really funny, I think…if I could only remember them.
Here endeth the first lesson, as it is said. Yeeaaaah, pretty deep for a Wednesday, as you can tell.
