    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

    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!"
