The Republican Float?

2014 St. Patrick's Parade 2

Our international readers may not know that the popular symbol of the Republican Party is the elephant. (The Democrats' is the donkey. Neither is complimentary.) I found this parade participant far back in the set-up area. You can barely read the URL on the red side panel but the sponsor is an auto body shop. Its logo is an elephant. Whether that has something to do with the owner's politics I don't know.

Much as I like elephants, I prefer donkeys.

I don't understand why an elephant would be a good logo for an auto body shop. Maybe it is to repair what would happen to your car if it encountered an elephant.

You'd think real elephants and donkeys would be insulted by being turned into political logos...

This float looks quite impressive though.

I assume this elephant comes out every year for St Patrick's and other events?

In the small archeological museum of Beaumes de Venise there's a big tooth found in the river bed of the local creek after a flood. It's been found to be a very ancient elephant tooth and some specialists believe it might belong to one of Hannibal's elephants who died here.

I knew about the Elephant and the Donkey. I'd go with the donkey.
