When You’ve Got An Itch…

…you scratch it!

(On a VW Polo in Pilanesberg National Park, South Africa!) According to MSN: Big’ Ol’ Trunkster was rumblin’ along when he had a belleh itch, so he just used the roof of this VW, which happened to have two passengers in it. No one was hurt, but their car is gonna need some TLC. Photo by Armand Grobler, Barcroft Media.

    The look on the “Big Ol’ Trunksters” says it “ahhh thats the spot!”

  2. I mean really, what are you gonna do?

  3. Lucky for them someone snapped a photo. Can you imagine trying get your insurance company to believe this without one?

  4. Barb and Paul says:

    Ain’t THAT the truth, Annette!

  5. I think the car’s seats might need a thorough cleaning.

  6. Anette, that was my thought too:

    I really, really want to see them try to explain this to their insurance company.

  7. Cheeky!

  8. isn’t that what rhinocerosuses are for?

  9. I’m still not sure he was “scratching”. 😛 Considering elephants are infamous for certain activities…

  10. One word: meep!!

  11. Small car with a large trunk

  12. Hope the passenger side window was up.

  13. That’s horrible and hilarious at the same time. I love it!!

    I don’t think I ever really realised how HUGE heffalumps are until now O_o

  15. Smartypants says:

    I’m picturing the passengers doing the ‘State Farm’ jingle to try and teleport out of there!

  16. Annette that is exactly what I was thinking.

  17. Note to self: Do not drive small car through elephant country. If forced to do so, try for a car with super rounded edges and no scratchy potential.

    But very glad this elephant with nice big tusks is still alive. Hope that stays true.
