The secretary general of the UN decided to have a report-writing contest for the various Western ambassadors. The subject was to be arbitrary, and the titles of the report should reflect something of the character of the representative nation. The Secretary General decided on the topic: elephants. A coupls of days later, he received the various reports. The titles were as follows: France: "Elephants -- a love story." England: "Elephants and their effect on the British Empire." USA: "How to build the biggest, bestest, fastest and most expensive elephant!" Canada: "Elephants: a federal or provincial matter?"
