Cement Elephant Update

Enough of the ephemeral! Enough of the spiritual, and the divinely inspired “up in the air”, “out in left field” kind of stuff. What we need is something real, something concrete. Like concrete elephants! Cement elephants! OK then. Here they are.
Bumbastories presents another chapter in the ongoing saga of the cement elephants. We apologize for the poverty of the elephants’ language and their limited conversational skills, but after all we are dealing with rather large animal sculptures here, so we have to keep our expectations in check.

Nothin’ much, Franklin. Actually, around 7,504 BCE, I was thinking of going out to catch a movie. And then in AD 1545Β  I was gonna go out to get something to eat. But then I remembered that I’m a concrete elephant of limited ambulatory options. So to sum it up, Franklin, mostly I just be chillin here in the mud.

  1. Reblogged this on THE CAT'S MEOW and commented:
    What a fabulous post on so many levels: the sculptures are beautiful and graceful, the blogger (James Baum) has a refined sense of fun and writes clearly, and it is an homage of sorts to one of our most beloved animals. Kudos to James (a.k.a. Bumba) for a big smile this a.m. Gypsy and Jamie

    1. Hey, thanks for the re-blog. It’s all quite tongue in cheek, or should I say trunk in cheek. But I’m happy if I can bring a smile.
