This is Beco the elephant. Beco lives at the Columbus Zoo and spends his free time playing water polo — or at least that’s what I was told.

I’m a little bitter. I was promised an elephant playing water polo. What I got was an elephant in a few feet of water kicking a soccer ball. This could be a miscommunication, but I’m more concerned that Beco is trying to pursue a career in a sport that he doesn’t actually know how to play.

If he wants to be a successful water polo player, there are a few necessary steps he will have to take.

First, he needs to figure out how to pick up the ball. That’s a major part of the game, and the lack of hands will make this part fairly difficult.

Secondly, he’s going to need a regulation size swimming pool instead of that sorry excuse for a puddle he’s currently training in.

Finally, Beco will have to find a water polo organization that allows elephants to play. That might be the hardest part.

17 Hilarious ‘Slutty’ Costumes To Wear On Halloween, According To Twitter

Historically speaking, “slutty” isn’t the most flattering word in the world, but this year I’ve heard slutty/sexy/racy costumes be described as exploitative, progressive, misogynist and feminist and I don’t really know what to think anymore. Regardless of your opinions concerning this type of attire, there’s no denying that scantily-clad house pets and blue collar workers […]

I don’t have the statistics to back this up, but from what I’ve seen, there’s a direct correlation between the rise of the Internet and the number of parents who shamelessly use their children as props to get attention. In most cases, this involves dressing kids up in ridiculous outfits or exploiting their gullibility for the enjoyment […]

Halloween is tonight, and if you haven’t picked out your costume, you’re basically screwed.
