THE RABBIT AND THE ELEPHANT
Excerpt From the Book "The Rabbit and the Elephant"
“Imagine you take two elephants . . .” The audience perks up. They sense a story is coming. “For our purposes, they are a male and a female.” “And you put them in that room behind us”
(pointing to a tiny kitchen off the main room).
More laughter. They know you couldn’t possibly fit one elephant into that room, let alone two! “You give them plenty to eat and drink and you shut the door on them. Three years later, you come back and open the door. What comes out?”
“They say that three elephants come out. Mom, Dad, and a baby.”
“That’s good. In three years, Mom and Dad elephant have had one baby! Now, instead of two elephants, let’s pretend you put two rabbits in the room.”
They start to chuckle. Already they can anticipate what is coming.
“At the end of three years, when you open the door, you had better run for your life, because millions of rabbits will explode out of that door.”
