How the Elephant got it's Long Trunk

A myth submitted to the site by Charley

Many, many years ago a massive, smelly elephant went to visit his mates in the African Jungle. When the elephant visited his mates the zebra giggled “Have you had a bath today elephant?”

Then the elephant ran away from the zebra and the crocodile. The elephant started to sob. “Why oh why do I have to be very smelly!” the elephant murmured. Every animal started to laugh at him because he had a very smelly back! The elephant just couldn’t help it.

Then he strolled down very, very slowly to the lake. As the elephant was drinking the ground shook and two gigantic, enormous rocks tumbled down the hill and splashed into the lake. Then the enormous rocks floated towards the elephant’s nose and trapped it. He pulled and he pulled until he got his nose out. After that the massive rocks floated away and then the fat elephant finally got a drink & then he realised he could reach the water.

After that he looked at his reflection in the water and his eyes went bigger and bigger. He started to jump excitedly explaining. “I’ve got a long trunk I can wash my back!” After that he started to tell all the other animals but before he did that he started to wash his back. He was so exited he started to skip all the way to tell all his friends.

Then they all had a party to celebrate with elephant because he was a lovely elephant! Then he was skipping down to the lake with all his friends and ran and made a big , massive SPLASH!
