    As opposed to Snakes

    It’s good to see that elephants see their emotion self as a dynamic project that is continually evolving through interactions of memory, social intercourse and experiences in the real and imagined environment. This sociocultural approach would need to rely on exploiting their limited language skills as much as possible to express and develop concepts of emotionality that were relevant to alleviating the pain of undiscarded feelings of egocentric ambivalence.
    This is very important for a creature wholly deprived of access to alcohol.

    Ha hah – Insightful and witty, as always, Superpun … although you seem to have overlooked two small things: First, that elephants do in fact have a very complex and emotive language, and second, they have access to the famed Amarula tree: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AmQPwgV-WbQ

    And, for the record, I genuinely wish I was afflicted with elephantine Hyperthymesia!

    Hyperthymesia is not always a blessing. Sometimes the mind gets stuck in a loop and at other times just to arrive at the “now” one has to relive everything that came before.
    .
    Fortunately for me, this is not the case but there are people who find it disabilitating.

    Are “we” referring to the fermented fruit?

    Snakes don’t have thumbs to suck when they are in need of comforting.

    Easy for you to say

    Quite so, Articulate Caveman – the very same painful loop that is the basis of today’s cartoon.
    And yes, we were referring to the fermented fruit, though I do know that nowadays this is held to be a myth.

    Crass, but pleasing to my base sense of humour.

    I was a thumb sucker – good thing my uncle was an orthodontist to fix my overbite!

    I’ve had serious concerns about what I perceived as my rapidly declining memory however, Mrs Superfrog assures me that it has never been any good.
    More and more I am outsourcing my memory to Google.

    Also, it’s been my experience that the desirable mind editing functions of alcohol don’t seem to accrue unless the beverage is consumed from a glass container and is best if accompanied by interesting food. I’d appreciate your views of the science behind these observations.

    @Superfrog

    My findings are very similar to your own, Professor Superpun.

    This calls for further research.
