Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving from the Cement Elephants.

Truth be told, these models of Ice-Age mammoths are made of plastocene not cement. They stand proudly outside Los Angeles’ magnificent Tar Pits Museum, which is a wonderful place and you ought to visit as soon as you can. However, in my wicked past, I did a whole series of these tongue in cheek (or trunk in cheek?) cement animal sculpture posts concerning philosophy, spiritual wisdom, and other “weighty” issues.

Happy Thanksgiving, oh Hubert!
Joy to the world!
Peace, Love….
Wait a minute, Franklin! Do you forget that we are cement elephants, lifeless animal sculptures stuck here in the mud for like 20 or 30 thousand years already? What's to be thankful about?

Verily so, Hubert. The life of a cement animal structure is none too enviable. Being stuck in the mud is not exactly a piece of cake, not your typical cup of tea. Which reminds me of all those Thanksgiving treats…..

And gravy too. Happy Thanksgiving to all the people out there!

Don’t forget the gravy!

    1. When it comes to idolatry all materials are acceptable. The wisdom of the the animal sculptures is without expiration dates, being both eternal and nonsensical at the same time. Cheers!
