    A Polish politician is upset with his local zoo for acquiring a "gay" elephant named Ninio who prefers male companions and will probably not make little elephants. Michal Grzes, a conservative councillor in the city of Poznan in western Poland, said, "We didn't pay 37 million zlotys (7.6 million pounds) for the largest elephant house in Europe to have a gay elephant live there. We were supposed to have a herd, but as Ninio prefers male friends over females how will he produce offspring?" It is unlikely that zoo officials will be able to teach or counsel Ninio out of his alternative lifestyle because a gay elephant, like his straight counterpart, never forgets.

    Only if we are footing the bill for the gayness is it of any concern to the majority.

    Elephants don't have the same prejudices as we do. Having the wrong kind of ears is a no-no though.

    LOL - this is funny, but don't we all choose to be mostly companions of our own sex? There is a line, it may have been from DH Lawrence, that friendship is impossible between a man and woman because of sex. My wife would love me going out with the girls. lol

    I know the 'When Harry met Sally' reference, but was it really originally DH Lawrence?
