...Are elephants common pets in the Netherlands?
How else would they keep the land so flat?
I don't know, but white elephants are quite common in America. ;)
They get a lot of tourists from Canada because of their unique white elephants.
I know where you are coming from.
You have to sit on big animimals because of the sea-level rise ;D
she took it for the zoo!!!
better than eating it
that's what i heard. de vrouw eet een olifant
Olifant it's such a cute word though!
Most languages say olifant or elephant or a simillar word. Only in hebrew we say "pil" like whaaaat?
In indonesian we say "gajah"
Oh thats similar to "Gaja" in sanskrit (India).
It's "slon" in Russian
And in Polish
In Slovene we say Slon
Olifant word reminds me to Olive Oil with a piece of bread!
I wonder where J.R.R. Tolkien came up with "Oliphaunt"...

For me and other people over 100 years old, this phrase is referring to a song starting with "Mijn tante heeft een olifant", "My aunt has (gotten) an elephant" Very funny for kids! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CVDiYPAJ4Zk
... and she rides it every day!
A famous Dutch song I believe. It was their entry for Eurovision. The only occasion where they allowed a live animal on stage if I'm not mistaken :P
at least not a cow
