Directions:
Cut the elephant up into bite size pieces. This will take about 2 months. Add enough brown gravy to cover. Cook over the wood fire for 4 weeks at 465 degrees. This will serve about 3,800 people. If more people are expected, the two rabbits may be aded, but do this only if necessary as most people do not like to find hare in their stew.
This is so like Uncle Bert, he had the most wonderful sense of humor. The last time I saw him I asked him for a picture, My mother looked at the one he gave me and I said,"You can't have it!" " To which he promptly said, "Girls, don't fight over me!". And smiled . from ear to ear.
