I like them, so shut the fuck up. :D

There's this one elephant in opera gear near dupont that I particularly like. I might have to steal him.

I doubt they were paid for by the city. When Chicago did their Cows on Parade (or was it the Walk of Cows? Can't remember the exact name), each cow was sponsored by different companies and artists. So I would assume the cows and donkeys are the same.

It's not about being original. In Chicago, they had cows. Cows=midwest. In DC, they have elephants & donkeys. That=politics. In New York, they have bums on the street. In Miami, they have silicon. In LA, they have smog. It's all about representing the city.

geez - i knew it wouldn't be long before someone started spray painting those animals!

there is a cherry blossom elephant that I think is really cool - I can't remember where I saw it. I want to say it was on 11th St somewhere but I'm not sure.

There is a really ugly donkey near the CPK on 18th St. Its green with pink flowers. Ewwww!

The metro elephant near Farragut North is pretty cool looking too.

why are they referring to these animals as if they were real?

....

"both D.C. artists, spent a week with their animals at the hospital, nursing them back to health. Prima Donkey was admitted about a week later, and three other animals --"

because artists are gay.

I like them, but i tend to like tackiness. They brighten up the city a bit, i think, and maybe add a little sense of humor to things. In Providence, RI last year, they had potatoes for some reason. I have no idea what that was supposed to say about Providence.

Everyone knows Providence is the Couch Potato Capital of the world.

Mmmmmmm... Clam chowder.... I remember this restaurant in the Marriot in Nashua, NH. They had the best clam chowder. They served it in a round loaf of sourdough bread. After you were done with the soup, you could eat the bread which would be drenched all the way to the crust.

Thats how most New England states serve the chowder, it's called a bread bowl. Don't ask me why but for lunch I had clam chowder, calamari and a few too many drinks. I havening a tough time putting together sentences, I knew it was a bad idea, but I do feel GREAT!!:beer::drool:

I know. But the combination of the excellent clam chowder WITH the bread bowl makes NH number one in my book.
