The following post is reprinted here for recreational purposes only. It has no hidden meaning. It makes no pretense and has no ulterior motive. It is not here to make fun of anyone nor is it intended to demean or malign anyone's religion or to harm any animals. It is only here for my personal satisfaction and because of my affinity for rhinos. Really. Honestly. That’s the truth.

If you are an Arab or a liberal or a member of PETA, if you obsess over political correctness or if you are easily prone to assume that anything or everything said or written by any white, male conservative must always be about racism, if you really want to believe, deep down within your heart of hearts that I have some evil, sarcastic, subversive motive in this post,
STOP!!! Do Not Proceed Any Further.

The elephant stood up and strode forward swinging and swaying between the animals and said, “Who will compete with me?” and the rhino said, “Me! I’ll compete with you!” So the rhino and the elephant ran together, and after a lot of toil, the elephant won. The lion presented him with a bundle of sugar cane and congratulated the Rhino.

I'm not sure what you are getting at with this one. I have read, read again and re-read that story... trying to figure out what it means. I know there is something hidden there but I don't get it.

OK. Let me be real clear. Read the disclaimer again, slowly. Get some help from a fifth grader if you need it. IT MEANS NOTHING. THERE IS NOTHING THERE. I ONLY POSTED THIS FOR THE RHINO PICTURE.

I KNOW IT'S HARD BUT TRY TO UNDERSTAND.
