'err... ah.. I dunno.. Get a male, you'd be more likely to find out.. It seems like it would be more obvious'
So he buys an elephant and keeps it in a room by itself with a peephole to watch it 24 hours a day. The next time I see him I think to ask what became of his surveillance, but he now has two moose in tow. He tells me they have 'squishy feet.' I don't know if that means they have five toes or not.. do moose have five toes or are they cloven in pairs, squishy like croissants? I do know that moose jellyfish congregate in packs of five, and to recollect that this is indeed true I wander over to the extended aquarium in the next room over. Sure enough, five inverted cups with short dangling tentacles periodically drop to the bottom of the tank to retrieve small shrimp or larval crustaceans. 'Crack Crack,' they pop the flesh. No more than two go down at a time. The other three remain near the surface to cover the ones below from maurading ???? jellyfish that have an irridescent quality of ceramics glazed in hues of brown, blue and black.
I turn around, meaning to ask him about his elephant again, but I only catch his back as he is leaving the room, exclaiming that it's his turn to fix dinner. Unfortunately, I don't recall seeing a kitchen anywhere, and we only have bales of hay in the cupboard. Somebody bought them for the elephant to make its stay more comfortable.
