Mysterious Movements of Cement Elephants

IMG_0334It’s amazing. The entire scientific community is astir!

Since last week’s Bumbastoriesreport – a report filed by Bumbastories‘ very own intrepid reporter (who asks to remain anonymous for reasons of his own personal safety and sanity) – this amazing story of the movement in space and time of the cement elephant has garnered the interest of scientists world-wide.IMG_0335

Of course, much of the news coverage has featured the “human” side of the story: the heart-warming reunification of these charming and lovable cement creatures. However, the big story here is this “quantum leap”, this Schrodinger’s “cement elephant in the box” quantum paradox that plays out before our very eyes: the movementDSCN0855 of a cement elephant through space-time.

Now he’s here and now he’s there. Or is it here again?

Here? There? Everywhere?

How can any particle or wave or cement elephant be in two places at the same time????????????????????????????????????????



We turn once again to the wisdom of Franklin, the cement elephant.

“Oh Franklin, cement elephant of great renown, can you offer us any explanation for this mysterious movement through space-time?”



“Uh. Maybe he swam?”

  1. AnElephantCant help thinking
    This is some crazy stuff you have created
    You may be slightly mad
    But please don’t be sad
    AnElephant thinks sanity is vastly overrated

    And if you say the cement Elephant moved, then AnElephant says he mastodon!

    1. I must have five or six cement elephant posts by now
      They keep on moving, I don’t know how
      I like your blog and I told my aunt
      A kangaroo can jump up high but anelephantcant

  2. Franklin speaks:

    You puny humans with pea brains. Your reporter placed his camera in different locations and as all human reporters are wont to do – he spun a web of lies and misinformation about us moving and crossing celestial and mystical lines. Such is the human nature – to fill in their potholes of ignorance with rubbish cleverly disguished as wisdom.

    One more, we suffered enough and now make clear something. We are not made of cement – that grey stuff that you place on the ground and step on. We are made of more esoteric blends that helps us weather the weather πŸ™‚ Do you want to hear that again? Weather the weather πŸ™‚

    In case you are wondering why I am speaking like this – it is that idiot from Singapore who thinks he can throw words together full of tone and texture but bereft of any iota of wisdom and get away with it.

    He ignores one simple fact. I am a musician and use my trumpet to communicate. Words are for people like him.

    Given a choice between that idiot and your reporter – I’ll take the reporter. At least he makes me look good πŸ™‚

    1. Mr Alagan,
      Sorry. Didn’t see this comment at first. I want to assure both you and Franklin the elephant that Bumbastories holds our reporters, intrepid or otherwise, to the same high journalistic and literary standards to which we hold all material that appears on the blog. We hold the bar high. Well, as high as we can. Bumbastories’ “Bar of Literary Excellence” is located on the ground floor of the corner of Main and Skid Row.
