The Elephant In The Refrigerator
'There's a elephant in my refrigerator! ' I shouted through the door
'It's.. an.. elephant, darling, I thought I told you that before'
'Well does that really matter now; sometimes you're such a bore
there's an elephant in my refrigerator, that I've never seen before'
'Are you positive my darling, the refrigerator‘s rather small
you surely are mistaken, as you can hardly see at all
peer a little closer,
take a little care
the refrigerator's too small to find a large beast there'
'Did I say it was a large one? I don't believe I did
I don't want to be personal but I know when big is big
and the elephant in the refrigerator certainly is not it
the problem's not the size, but the fact that it is it'
'Darling if it isn't big can't you push it to the side
I'm getting rather thirsty
and you only went for ice'.
