GIANT ELEPHANT IN ANTWERP (ROYAL DE LUXE)


The elephant is part of the story of The Little Girl Giant. The Jules Verne adventures of a time-traveling elephant and a space faring giant girl can be found here.

I love the attention to detail with the water! Again I am agast with the sheer craftsmanship that went into it

I have decided not to watch this since my computer has no sound. However, I can't seem to quell the urge to comment so here it comes...today, I'm wearing new and fabulous shoes...shoes that would never fit a little girl giant OR an elephant...and that's why they're mine. The end.

Judith, as am I.

Cheesy, as realistic as they made the girl giant, it would not surprise me if she ripped one off.

Kara, just sing John Lennon’s “Imagine” while you watch. Arm and hand gesticulations would be a good idea. I’m very glad to hear you don’t have elephant feet. Along those lines, I learned some new words recently. They are “log leg” and “cankle.” Women can be so cruel to other women.

Oh "cankle" is OLD. Allow me to share one my friends and I came up with...and it's something I suffer from. It's called the "butthigh". It's when the ass merges directly into the thigh with no clear definition separating them. It also makes pants hard to shop for. Yes, yes...I live to educate.

I can't see these... not even on a regular computer. Am I doing something wrong? Do I need special software??? :'(

Kara, cankle is the funniest word I’ve ever heard. How did I get this old without ever hearing it? It still makes me laugh every time. I read your comment about your knees and now the butthigh thing. I think your trip to Morocco has done some damage to your self-image. Either that or you’ve fallen in love with the burka look and you are looking for excuses to put one on.

Hi Anne, that is a drag. Here are the links. You’ll have to cut and paste but I highly recommend checking them out.

Thanks for sharing Slag...I agree, the girl has much more distinction. Still, the size & detail are amazing.
LOL, I don't know what 'cankle' or 'log leg' mean & just now learned 'butt-high!'

Hi Skinny, I can’t even go into those definitions. As a male of the species, I’ve already come close to stepping over the line into dangerous territory. Like most guys, I run scared that way.

LOL, OT but this morning a term came to my mind that I think may parallel 'log leg' & ironically enough it is 'elephant leg.' However, it can be used to describe thick legs on men or women.

Ive heard cankle alright - but never the others. Jeez we women bang on about men with their degrading terminology when we women know how to get the diamond tip claws out to their own! Me-bloody-owh!

Another great piece! They went all out, having the publications to coincide with these marvels of engineering and human co-operation. Great story. I liked the little girl better than the elephant, but that's probably due to some dark character deficiency. I could identify with the sense of urgency the elephant displayed in the frames showing the giant crane seemingly probing for the beast's prostate! Ouch!

I also never knew women had broken down leg girth and shape into a unique vernecular. I always simple-mindedly called em "thick-legged".

Hi Skinny, these are tough times we live in if you don’t conform to current body-type expectations.

Hey Judith, cankle did it to me again, I’m laughing my ass off.

Hi Madpotter, yeah, the colonoscopy did look a little painful. By the way, you can be sure there are ample terms to describe just about any defect or non-conforming characteristic known to humankind. It is best not to know too much about it.
