March 18, 2016: Del Rio News-Herald * OPINION * Letter to the Editor * Hillary and the three elephants










































Letter to the Editor,

Hillary and the Three Elephants

Once upon a time, there was a little old woman named Hillary. 
She went on a power-walk throughout the Country and came upon the White House. 
She frantically forced her way inside.
At the Dining Room Table, there were three bowls of Crow Stew. 
Hillary was enormously power-hungry. 
She tasted the Crow Stew from the first bowl.
"This Crow Stew is too hot!" she yelled.
She tasted the Crow Stew from the second bowl.
"This Crow Stew is too cold!" she scowled.
She tasted the last bowl of Crow Stew.
"This Crow Stew is just right!" and she slurped it all up.
After she'd eaten the entire bowl of Crow Stew she was feeling a little tired. 
She walked into the Oval Office and saw three Executive Chairs. 
Hillary sat in the first Executive Chair.  
"This Executive Chair is too big!" she shouted.
She sat in the second Executive Chair.
"This Executive Chair is too small!" she shrieked.
She tried the last Executive Chair.
"This Executive Chair is just right!" she screamed. 
The Executive Chair broke under the weight of her inflated ego and she fell on her bottom!
Hillary was very tired by this time, so she went upstairs to the Presidential Suite. 
She lay in the First Presidential Bed, but it was too hard. 
She lay in the Second Presidential Bed, but it was too soft. 
She lay in the Third Presidential Bed and it was just right. 
Hillary fell asleep.
The Three Elephants came home.
"Someone's been eating my Stew," commented Ted the Elephant.
"Someone's been eating my Stew," remarked Marco the Elephant.
"Someone's been eating my Stew and they ate it all," stated John the Elephant.
"Someone's been sitting in my Executive Chair," declared Ted the Elephant.
"Someone's been sitting in my Executive Chair," iterated Marco the Elephant.
"Someone's been sitting in my Executive Chair and it broke to pieces," observed John the Elephant.
They went upstairs to the Presidential Suite.
"Someone's been sleeping in my bed," articulated Ted the Elephant.
"Someone's been sleeping in my bed, too" exclaimed Marco the Elephant.
"Someone's been sleeping in my bed and she's still there," noted John the Elephant.
Hillary woke up and squealed in horror, "Help, I’m a woman, it’s my turn to be in the White House!" 
She ran away, never to return to the White House ever again.
