Please what is the point of this joke? Maybe I'm stupid, but I have no clue, what's so funny on this:

What do you do with an elephant with four balls?

Walk him and pitch to the rhino.


My big apology, if it's offensive..Emotion: big smile I heard that in the new episode of Without a Trace TV show, where this said one guy to a girl, in order to score by her..;-)

thx in advance ...

with regards

The first line is meant to sound risque (4 balls = 4 testicles), but the joke is that it is not a sexual reference-- 4 balls here means 4 baseball pitches that do not cross home plate, and so the batter is 'walked', i.e. allowed to move to first base automatically.

Actually, the joke as it stands does not make sense, since if the baseball-playing elephant already has 4 balls, he has already been walked-- a decision post facto cannot be made.

Thx Mr.M,

but since I have absolutely no clue about baseball, I give this up..:-(((. It is a similar situation like when I was watching CSI NY, last week. They mentioned there the story about Steve Bartman(by-stander, who catched the faul ball)...Baseball is for me like soccer for you Americans..:-)...I just know, that there is a batter and some players in the field at the bases and that's all..:-)))

Thanks anyway...

have a nice day.

Pretty sure that joke is said, 'what do you do with an elephant with 3 balls? You walk him and pitch to the rhino.' Makes much more sense than 4 balls as the elephant would already be walked.

3-ball version is from Hot Shots (1991 , the original). The beautiful Valerie Golino is telling Charlie Sheens character she will recommend he is grounded. one of the prettiest women in any Hollywood production.

The actual joke is the same as above but is only 3 balls. Referenced from the movie "Hot Shots".
