The Travelling Salesman

Stop me if you've heard this one before.

I have heard this one before. Please stop.

So, I was travelling around, selling goods and services. It was late at night, out in the rural areas, when my car broke down.

Nearby was an elephant farm, and I knocked on their door and asked if I could spend the night.

"Sure," said the kindly elephant farmer, "But the only place we have is the stables, with the elephants."

So, I slept next to the elephant.

Sleeping next to the elephant was like being Canada. I was a population of about 33 million people. That was pretty disorienting. I had a parliamentary government system, I was 46% Catholic, and I had socialized medicine. It was colder than I'm used to, but the main thing that weirded me out was being 33 million people simultaneously.

Also, elephant stables smell bad.
