    It was six men of Indostan,

    To learning much inclined

    Who went to see the Elephant

    (Though all of them were blind),

    That each by observation

    Might satisfy his mind.

    (If you look up the rest of the poem by John Godfrey Saxe, make sure you find a version that includes the final verse explaining that it’s an allegory for theological debates.)

    Trying out a dip pen. Maybe a crow quill?

    Exactly like a dream I had recently, except I was naked.

    You can pick your cheese, and you can pick your moose, but you can’t…oh, never mind.

    Moose nostrils remind me of Swiss cheese too. It’s an easy mistake that anyone could make.

    This portion of his initiation, into the Loyal Order of Moose, did not go well for Lloyd.

    Apparently, the moose had smelled cheese shortly before it died.
