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.

Get Started On Your Resolutions: Why You Don’t Need A New Year For A New You

We are lazy people. Let me rephrase that: We have a general inclination towards laziness. There, that’s a little less offensive. However, since there is this general inclination towards laziness, I shouldn’t expect much backlash for being offensive. After all, being offended takes energy; you actually have to do something to express your anger. So, […]

Why Having A Plan B Is So Much More Important Than Having An Amazing Plan A

We have just recently closed on yet another college graduation season. Rather than having long lists of quotes and other motivational humdrum, I have decided to tell new graduates the truth: Your Plan A will probably not work. I’m here to advise every recent grad out there to always have a Plan B available to […]

How The Clippers Will Inevitably Suffer If Sterling Remains As Owner

Yesterday, Chris Paul and Doc Rivers discussed boycotting the NBA until Donald Sterling is no longer the official owner of the Clippers. Although Sterling’s wife, Rochelle, sold the team to Microsoft honcho Steve Ballmer for a record-obliterating $2 billion, Donald Sterling has since launched anti-trust lawsuits against the league, delaying the official sale. Sterling has […]
