Can we talk about the elephant in the room?

Asked by picante (11492points) November 4th, 2013

Sound the trumpets! Our wry-eyed Pachyderm-in-the-Room has entered the mansion. He’s got his party hat on, so let’s get busy. I brought the largest bottle of champagne I could find – that would be the 30-liter Melchizedek, of course.

Congratulations @Pachyderm_In_The_Room! You are a great addition to Fluther. Glad you came and stayed.
The party is in full swing now, so just drop your trunk in your room, which is on the wing with all the animals and join in the fun.

Welcome dearest thick-skinned friend. Unload your trunk and take a warm mudbath. Well done and enjoy the view.

@Pachyderm_In_The_Room Congrats on the 10K and welcome to the mansion. You are a very fine member of the collective.

Pachy's avatar

Special thanks to you, dear @picante, for being the first to trumpet my arrival to the 10K mansion. You’re only a few blocks away from it yourself.

marinelife's avatar

Congratulations @Pachyderm_In_The_Room! Well-deserved. Your voice is an important one in the collective.

Congo rats to a wonderful contributor, and the mascot of my favorite ball team!

Mazel Tov Pachy!

One of the wisest and kindest animals in the Fluther menagerie! And a film buff to boot. (Not that I ever would.)

LuckyGuy's avatar

I reached out into the darkened room to offer a congratulatory handshake and felt something like a warm snake. I then felt an open zipper and decided to just say:
Congrats on the 10K! It’s great to have you here!

cookieman's avatar

If you lumber on over to the concierge desk, you can trade in that lurve for ten-thousand peanuts.

Happy day Mr. Phant!!! Nice job.

Seek's avatar

Yay! Congrats!

As a 10K gift I’ve bought you some lovely vegan red tonail polish to help you hide in the cherry trees !!

@Pachyderm_In_The_Room Check it out, you’re famous!

Saito: Inception. Is it possible?

Arthur: Of course not.

Saito: If you can steal an idea, why can’t you plant one there instead?

Arthur: Okay, this is me, planting an idea in your mind. I say: don’t think about elephants. What are you thinking about?

Saito: Elephants?

Arthur: Right, but it’s not your idea.

Congratulations on 10k! I like your smart and sensible answers. You’re a great addition to Fluther.

Pachy's avatar

Pachy feels the lurve!

ETpro's avatar

Make room in the mansion. No, I mean make a REALLY BIG ROOM. And it’s going to need a nice lake and some tasty trees for @Pachyderm_In_The_Room.

Well done. You’re a great asset to Fluther with your thoughtful and well-researched contributions and your subtle humor. And you are a very welcome addition to the mansion.

glacial's avatar

We’re going to need a bigger mansion.

Congratulations, @Pachyderm_In_The_Room!

OneBadApple's avatar

So, Pachy.

Are you still gonna talk to us unwashed, outside-the-gates lowly people, or what ??

Coloma's avatar

Oh, where have I been! Fashionably late to the party, or just oblivious to the festivities until now.
10,000 peanuts for my favorite baggy kneed mammal in the mansion.:-D

augustlan's avatar

Yay! Congratulations, dear sir. Your room is ready.

Pachy's avatar

@augustlan—what a great room! Far nicer than the one I have here. Thank you!

Pachy's avatar

Thanks, @Coloma, and not to worry—we didn’t completely start the party without ya.

Pachy's avatar

@OneBadApple—I’ll wash everybody with my trunk!!!

Pachy's avatar

@glacial—LOL! I do have pretty big feet!

Pachy's avatar

@ETpro, from you, a VERY BIG compliment. Thank you, my friend.

jca's avatar

It’s starting to feel like the mansion is a zoo! Congrats, Pachy, on one awesome and quick achievement. Welcome to the big house!

rojo's avatar

Having read all the above accolades what can I say but to quote John Godfrey Saxe when he said:

“And so these men of Indostan
Disputed loud and long,
Each in his own opinion
Exceeding stiff and strong,
Though each was partly in the right,
And all were in the wrong!”

Congratulations Pachy. you fill the room with your presence.

Pachy's avatar

@jca, LOL! Everywhere I turn up turns into a zoo!!!

Pachy's avatar

@rojo, great quote.

Coloma's avatar

Don’t big feet mean…uh, um…..a bigger trunk? lololol

Dutchess_III's avatar

Here is a song for you. :D

Dutchess_III's avatar

Here is another song for you!

mazingerz88's avatar

Congrats-! I brought peanuts. : )

Pachy's avatar

Thanks @Dutchess_III ! Peppy tunes for a peppy pachyderm (I love “Tusk”).

Pachy's avatar

@Coloma, I was waiting for somebody to say that and I was betting it would be YOU. ;-)

Coloma's avatar

^^^^ ;-p

longgone's avatar

I’m late. Sorry, congrats, and…where’s the food?

Pachy's avatar

There may still be a peanut or two in the carpet, @longgone.

longgone's avatar

^ What a host.

OneBadApple's avatar

No, sorry. Chris Christie stopped by to congratulate you and took care of any potential errant-peanut issues….

janbb's avatar

@OneBadApple Talk about an Elephant in the Room!

OneBadApple's avatar

Aww, be nice @janbb. A little respect. We’re probably talking about our next president right here…

Dutchess_III's avatar

Can we talk about the possum in the room?

YARNLADY's avatar

^^I saw that. I often expect to see a skunk come through our dog door, but it hasn’t happened so far

Katniss's avatar

@YARNLADY Ummmmmm…. You should probably knock on wood. You may have just cursed yourself. lol

talljasperman's avatar

Elephants never forget. kudos on getting 10k.

Coloma's avatar

@YARNLADY @Katniss I had a mama raccoon and her 3 kids come through the cat door one night and party down on a lemon bundt cake on my table at 2 a.m. they were so into the cake I had to actually start waving my arms around and yelling before they casually ambled back out the cat door. haha

Kardamom's avatar

I just got out of the emergency room. I will be back to this party in the next day or so, if you still want me.

For now, I shall just say Congratulations! I’ll be back though.

augustlan's avatar

@Kardamom What happened? Are you okay?

Kardamom's avatar

@augustlan I’ll PM you, but yes, I seem to be OK. Some bad stomach problems mixed with pain in the back and neck.
