When one donkey tells his friend that they need to talk about "the big elephant in the room," his friend wonders what this embarrassing issue could possibly be. Is it that fact that he ate all the crunchy nut ice cream? Is it that he picked his friend last for soccer... and baseball, and volleyball? Is it the "going in the pool" incident? Or is it none of those things at all? With hilarious artwork and clever wordplay, Lane Smith demonstrates just how BIG a problem a simple verbal misunderstanding can become.
