Very Much Not the Olympics



AnElephantCant be bothered with this nonsense
He thinks he’ll just ignore it himself
It is totally absurd
With a list of banned words
Like London Summer Olympic Games 2012


Yes these words are all quite forbidden
By the chaps who promote sporting excellence
McDonalds and Coke
BP and the folk
From Cadbury’s – gosh now it makes sense



AnElephantCant explain how much better
Is the whole scene at the Cowal Highland Gathering
Marching Pipe Bands
And a whiff of romance
As bonnie lassies dance a wee fling that’s enchanting


He enjoys a quick jig at the ceilidh
He finds that a pibroch enriches
He won’t misbehave
His heart must stay Brave
When he gets eaten alive by the midges


AnElephantCant toss the caber
Though he can pick up the trunk in his trunk
But wouldn’t you know it
When he tries to throw it
It lands on his tootsies with a clunk



The Sassenach Bearded Ladies Ensemble
Should be avoided unless you have great courage
These girls can fight they can run
They crush boulders for fun
And they play water polo with crocodiles in porridge


AnElephantCant hurl a haggis
He thinks that is not very sociable
They land in the mud
With a squelch and a thud
He just hopes the wee beasties are washable



Perhaps he can try free style wrestling
He would make use of his incredible bulk
To squash the opposition
A quick demolition
Then he could take on The Incredible Hulk


AnElephantCant win Highland Games trophies
Although clearly he is rather well built
He is not too athletic
But please be sympathetic
Because he looks jolly good in a kilt!

    Why do I always feel I am reading a foreign language when I land here?

    I am setting a goal for myself. Each time I visit I will pick a word or two of anelephantcant..jibberese and thoroughly research it, memorize it and use it ten times a day. (well maybe not).

    The word for today is Sassenach Bearded Ladies. WoW! You sure want to avoid them.


    • Could it be because you are reading a foreign language when you land here?
      Sassenach is the Scots gaelic word for a lowlander or southerner, but now is used by Scots to mean our historic enemy, the English.


Go on, say something, even if it's rude!
