Kickass and the keeper’s elephant turd

Kickass, the doorstop dog, says the keeper has a story for today’s “mysterious package” news cycle.  The keeper was a Milwaukee Journal columnist during the heyday of the Great Circus Parade, when a package was delivered to his desk from Chappie Fox of the Circus World Museum.  Inside, carefully wrapped and labeled was a giant dried elephant turd and a note that said, “I thought this might be useful in your work.”

Not one to waste anything, even an elephant turd almost as big as a basketball, the keeper put the package back together and mailed it to his brother Orv along with a note that said, “I thought  you might find this of interest.”

Brother Orv’s response was prompt and brief: “Do not ever send me another elephant turd!”  The keeper never has.
