Title: Elefino

Alt text: "Hell if I know"

Was going through the comics, and this one is so goood. It even has a PBF feel to it.

It's been known that elephants often rape rhinos...

Yeah I thought it was an anti-joke - like him being realistic, makes me wonder how many (probably most) xkcd comics I've misinterpreted
