Happy metafilter elephant day!

Any plans for celebration? These guys seem to have jumped the gun by a day, but they were close.

wtf, why does everyone think that Elephant Day is Oct 7th. Is it a timezone thing? Is there an ISO board that can be petitioned regarding this?

ISO board

No, no, no; last year was Elephant Day. This year it's bees.

In honor of Elephant Day, the img tag should be brought back, just for today.

Don't say anything about the ear, OK. It was a long time ago - a poaching accident - and he's quite vain, everybody just pretends they don't see it. You don't want to get on his bad side, elephants don't forget these things.

There is an elephant next to the ballet.

And so it begins.
Im my defence, I read the story about the bees and elephants and decided to share with MeFi before seeing this thread. I nearly allowed the anniversary to dissuade me, but bees and elephants are amongst my favourite things.

(More accurately, that's Elephant Man doing a song called Blase. But let's not split hairs.)
