image for Elephants blamed for increase in trunk calls in South Africa
Is he making a trunk call?

It seems that trunk calls are being made increasingly in the capital of South Africa, Pretoria. Many people are accusing elephants of carrying out these clandestine calls and are right on the edge of making some of these Proboscidea accountable for their actions.

One annoyed resident said: "The elephants are becoming increasingly arrogant and think they can get away with anything and not be held up to public scrutiny."

However, the Minister Assisting the Minister for Communications has made a trunk call to his boss who then issued a statement calling for calm on the issue.

In part, it read "Elephants do have large trunks but this does not mean that all trunk calls are automatically made by elephants".

The rest of the statement is not available for ears, especially big ones.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
