A frickin’ elephant

That reminded me of a story of another Davis facilitator that I had read recently. The kid had told his mum that he can spell ‘elephant’. She said, ‘Great, spell it!’. He proudly said: ‘b-e-c-a-u-s-e’. The teacher had tried to help them spell ‘because’ with the acronym: “Big Elephants Cannot Always Use Small Enclosures”. Maybe not always so useful, these shortcuts, that may be taken quite literally as a ‘frickin’ elephant’.
