Squashing Grandpa

Mom: What should we get Grandpa for his birthday?
Skeezix: How about an elephant?
Princess-know-it-all: No, not an elephant. It costs a lot to feed them and besides they’re very dangerous.
Princess-know-it-all: It’s because they’re so nearsighted.
Skeezix: but an elephant would be so cool!
Princess-know-it-all: No it wouldn’t be. You’d get squashed.
Snarky-pants: Well, we could get it some glasses. Like Doctor Doolittle did with the horse.
Princess-know-it-all: I don’t think too many Doctor Doolittles are practicing these days.
Skeezix starts lurching around imitating a blind, mad elephant squashing Grandpa.
