Why does an elephant wear dark glasses?
If you had all those stupid jokes told about you, you’d wear dark glasses, too.

What’s the proper way to raise an elephant?
With a hydraulic lift.

Why did the Cub Scout take bread and butter with him in the street?
He was looking for the traffic jam.

I have a tree right here in my hand!
Really? That’s a very small tree. Show me.

It’s right here (holds up outstretched hand). It’s a palm!

Why did the Scout live in a house with no bathtub or shower?

‘Cause he wanted to be filthy rich. Lucky dog.
