He’s 10 and He’s Gay!

April 13, 2009

A Polish politician is up in arms over the local zoo’s acquisition of a “gay” elephant. 

““We didn’t pay 37 million zlotys ($11 million) for the largest elephant house in Europe to have a gay elephant live there,” Michal Grzes, a conservative councilor in the city of Poznan in western Poland, was quoted as saying.”

Apparently the elephant, named Ninio, prefers the company of males and will probably not procreate.

A zoo official thinks that Councilor Grzes might be jumping the gun.

“The head of the Poznan zoo said 10-year-old Ninio may be too young to decide whether he prefers males or females as elephants only reach sexual maturity at 14.”

I’m just glad that the zoo staff had the presence of mind to keep this guy clear of the Ape House on his way out of the park. We wouldn’t want him to witness a male chimp grooming one of his comrades. The Councilor might claim that the ape is the hairdresser of the bunch and ask for his banishment into the wild.

This guy needs a hobby.

Maybe he should write a humor blog.
