No Fans of Ellie

by Bruce Bennett

“Every mascot has its thing. Some dunk. Others flip. As for Ellie the Elephant,
the mascot for the New York Liberty women’s basketball team? She twerks.”
The New York Times

An elephant twerking?
For Decency’s sake,
is nothing now working?
Give us a break!

We don’t like complaining,
but elephant’s ass?
If that’s entertaining,
please! Give us a pass!
