Kanjibhai the jeweller called the police station to report a
"You'll never believe what happened, Officer.
A truck backed up to my store, the doors opened and an elephant came
He broke my plate glass window, stuck his trunk in, sucked up all
the jewellery and climbed back into the truck.
The doors closed and the truck pulled away."
The Pandu hawaldar said, "Could you tell me, for identification
purposes, whether it was an Indian elephant or an African elephant?"
"What's the difference?" asked Kanjibhai Jaweri.
"Well," said the Hawaldar , "an African elephant has great big ears
and an Indian elephant has little ears."
"Come to think of it, I couldn't see his ears," said Kanjibhai "He
had a stocking over his head."
