It’s up to you: Sync or swim!”

She was first elected in 1972, and she had run unopposed in every election since.
When her age began to hinder her from getting about, her constituents observed, “The Earl Grey mayor, she ain’t what she used to be.”
It seems that an elephant got too close to all the baby ducks the circus had brought in for Easter, and accidentally inhaled a bunch of them.
The poor elephant was choking on them and no one could help. (Ever tried doing the Heimlich on a pachyderm?)
Finally, in desperation, the trainer goosed him — and the elephant blew out a whole trunk full of downy feathers.
