An Irishman went to London for a visit to the circus. While there, he saw a man with an elephant act. The man claimed the elephant could look at a person and tell that person's age. The Irishman was very skeptical and said so, in no uncertain terms. The man had the elephant look at a small boy and the elephant stomped its foot 9 times. "Is that right?" he asked the boy. "Yes I'm nine." the boy said. The Irishman continued his loud heckling, still not beieving that this was true. The man asked the elephant to tell the ages of several other people, and each time the elephant stomped his feet and the people said he was correct. The Irishman got even louder and more abusive toward the man. Finally the man could take it no longer and wagered the Irishman that the elephant could look at him and tell him his age. The Irishman took him up on the wager. The elephant looked real close at the Irishman,turned around, raised his tail and cut wind like you wouldn't believe. Then turned back around, knocked the Irishman to the ground with his trunk and then stomped on him twice. The Irishman, crumpled and bleeding, staggered back to his feet and with a sound of disbelief in his voice cried, "Mother of Mary he's right! FARTY TWO!"
