In the divine Scriptures, there are shallows and there are deeps; shallows where the lamb may wade, and deeps where the elephant may swim.

Have you been for a two-mile swim lately? I know that I haven’t. And I love the ocean as much as the next person (or sea-dwelling creature), but who would have guessed that elephants can swim up to two miles out to sea?

This hilarious video about swimming elephants by comedian Ricky Gervais is sure to give you a laugh:

If you’ve never seen an elephant ski, you’ve never been on acid.

(I don’t expect to see this anytime soon, but you just never know.)

About Laura Kutney

Laura Kutney was born, raised and still lives in California. Although she studied chemical engineering in college, Laura’s love affair with philosophy and writing started before she can remember. If one could peek inside of her heart, they would find a whirlwind of thoughts and feelings swirling around a collection of words, books, art, music, photos, and most importantly, her closest friends and family and treasured places. Laura often looses herself in thought. This, combined with the fact that life is ever-changing, leaves her with plenty to write about. She can be found here at elephant journal, on her blog (Mosaic Commons) and on Facebook.
