A woman’s red station wagon was crushed by an elephant at a circus.
The owners of the animal apologized, explaining that the animal, for some reason, simply liked to sit on red cars.
In spite of the damage, the woman’s car was still drivable.
But on the way to the garage she was stopped short by an accident involving two other cars just ahead of her.
When the ambulance arrived a few minutes later the attendants took one look at her car, then ran over to assist her.
"Oh, I wasn’t involved in this accident," she explained. "An elephant sat on my car."
The ambulance attendants quickly bundled her off to the hospital for possible shock and head injuries, despite the lady’s vehement protests.
Sometimes people just have a hard time believing the truth.
