    First you have to catch the elephant. To catch an elephant, you first need to dig a giant hole. Then you put a good amount of ashes in the bottom of the hole. Then you line the hole with peas all around the perimeter of the hole. Then you wait until the elephant comes. When the elephant goes to take a pea, you kick him in the ash hole.
