Elephant at a buffet



This is a snap from an email i received this morning from a friend of mine... She sends interesting forwards, I must say... Today's forward was about an artist elephant.
As I read the last line which says " buffet of fruits and vegetables at the event.", I could not help thinking why not a full vegetarian buffet for the elephant?

Unsure if elephants do not like cooked vegetarian full meal ( including sweets and icecream).. but just imagined this elephant eating a complete buffet meal as a treat for winning the event....

The lunch is held for just the winner at the play ground. There are trucks full of cooked rice, Drums of side dishes, Trolleys of rice mixed appropriately with the side-dishes. There are uniformed men standing at every counter to direct the elephant to the next food item. Every counter has atleast 5 people to help with the serving ,replenishing, and clearing the trolleys. The guest of the day finishes one complete round of the main course and moves ahead with the dessert. Trolleys of mixed fruits was served. Next , the elephant moves over to the sweets section and eats up all of all kinds of sweets. Last round, our guest gets tired, but still goes ahead to finish the drum of icecream too...

In the really posh lunch buffet that our guest attended, there were atleast 10 counters in all, and five men for the guard-of-honor event and five people from the management. So in all sixty people were posted to ensure that the winner had a great lunch time...

Just wondering... may be this is why, the Creator ensured that animals, elephants in particular do not eat cooked full meals.. People can't afford the cost.. :)

That was a day-dream at work as soon as I saw the mail this morning, from my friend. Day dreams sometimes make ur day.. just like this one did!!! :)
