BOLO, PEOPLE OF BARABOO, WISCONSIN:

An elephant was roaming a neighborhood in Baraboo after it got loose from Circus World Friday morning.

From http://managementhelp.org/marketing/advertising/defined.htm
If the circus is coming to town that's advertising.
If you put a sign on the back of an elephant, that's promotion.
If the elephant walks,through the mayor's flower bed, that's publicity.
If you get the mayor to laugh about it, that's public Relations.
If people come to see the hubbub about the elephant and watch the circus, that's sales.

And if it eats someone's tree?

The call to police dispatchers is great. Sounds a lot like my frequent calls to the dispatchers.

"Yeah, I need assistance removing some suspicious elephants subjects from my business property.

"What are the elephants wearing."

"One has a red saddle and funny hat and the other has a hoodie, knee pants and blue backpack."

"Do they have any guns?"

"They may be carrying one in their trunk. Both haver trunks."

"Do they appear to be on drugs."

"They just ate the tree in front, so yeah, a very large does of PCP probably."

"What are they doing now?"

"Littering."

How it got in my pajamas, I'll never know.

The elephant in Baraboo appears to have mottled skin on her back. Call a pachydermatologist.

A re-enactment of a Circus Boy story where Corky (Mickey Dolenz) saves the day?
