Q: How does an elephant hide in a cherry tree?
A: It paints its toenails red. Duh.
Q: How does the elephant get up in the tree to begin with?
A: Go ask Hermann Reiche. Doi.
“In 1891, Hermann Reiche patented a platform “to enable an elephant to climb up a tree.”
I bet he made tens of dollars with this patent, tree branch butts mortised and lag-bolted into a tree stump. Wish I’d thought of it first. What a guy.
