Elephants everywhere but in the room

This is absolutely, positively not important — it’s just funny: D.C. gossip site Wonkette got a hold of the Minneapolis St. Paul Host Committee’s promotional brochure and proceeds to mock it.

The pamphlet’s conceit is placing a Photoshopped elephant image — trunk and tusks raised — at various Twin Cities locales, including First Avenue, the Guthrie and local lakes. Wonkette decided it would be improved with less-dignified captions. To wit: How big would an elephant toilet be?

To locals obsessed with how others see us, it’s a data point you didn’t see coming. (Hat tip to reader S.B.)
