In honor of Ella Publishing’s spotlight on Quick & Creative Quizzes today, I thought I would share some creatively funny AND elephant-themed Q & A of my own.
Behold, the stupid elephant jokes!

Okay, okay…I’m here all week, folks. Don’t forget to tip your waitress.
And be sure to check out the equally (or possibly more) entertaining interview with Wendy Smedley and Angie Lucas over at the Ella blog. I hear there are prizes involved!
Maybe you’ll even be inspired to do a layout using one of their awesomely simple quizzes. Things are a little crazy around here with school starting tomorrow, but the printable quizzes & sketches are so quick to use, I think I might just be able to squeeze one in. If I get it done, I'll post it here later. If you do one, I hope you'll share it with me!
