“What’s that?”

“It’s an elaffigraba.”

“Eh?”

“El-aff-ig-ra-ba.”

“Oh…ok…how did that come about?”

“Well, you know, just messing about with some odds and ends, like you do, and I made this.”

“Looks very…different.”

“Yeah!  Doesn’t it? I’m very proud of this one.”

“Sure, sure.  So um, where should it go?”

“Somewhere on the Serengeti I would have thought.”

“And you’ve made a mate for it?”

“Oh yes!  Here, take a look.”

“What?  Oh my word…”

“Yeah.”

“That….it…is that what I think it is?”

“Yup.”

“Right there?  Right on its…between its…oh my…”

“I know, right?  So what’dya think?”

“And you put it there?”

    A clever name mash-up for the animal, and to leave us, well, hanging at the end to use our imaginations about the mate. Reminds me of Lewis Carroll’s cleverness. Neat stuff!

  11. You must have a better quality copy of the image than me. I don’t see it at all. 🙂
