Elephant Stew (Joke)


  • 1 Elephant
  • 2 Rabbits
  • salt and pepper to taste


Cut elephant into small, bite-size pieces. This should take about 2 months. Add enough brown gravy to cover, cook over kerosene fire for about four weeks at 465 degrees F. This will serve 3800 people. If more are expected, two rabbits may be added but do this only if necessary as most people do not want to find hare in their stew.


Happy Thanksgiving

I don't know if I have enough jars to can this! Hmmm, each quart jar will hold approximately 2 pounds of food.

I really didn't believe you were serious about cooking a whale...LOL

My son said after hearing the whale songs during his trip to Alaska, they

had become a part of his soul. Interesting thought. Cute joke though. Thanks for the chuckles.
