|Dave Taylor and the elephant in the room.|
Taylor looked around the table and asked if anyone else could see the elephant in the room and received blank stares. The pachyderm then smeared frosting on Taylor's cheek with its long trunk and the room errupted with laughter. The next hour was filled with uncontrolled laughter, as reporters related their favorite OFF THE WALL news story from the past eight years. At the end of the day, the huge birthday pachyderm was crated and sent to an elephant sancturary in Afica, where it could celebrate all its remaining birthdays amonst fellow elephants.
The staff was given the rest of the day off and Taylor went back to work, scouring the wire for worthy news stories. Taylor would like to thank readers for their birthday wishes and promises continued reporting of news not reported elswhere.
