Greetings friends!

Imagine for a moment that you, one day, decided to spend your hard earned money on a trip to the zoo. You really wanted to communicate with the elephants.

The zoo is located in a neighboring town.

You woke up very early, quickly packed up and quickly went to the railway station to catch the train that would take you to the zoo.

Together with you, your wife and children, a noisy and cheerful company is waiting for a meeting with elephants.

And so, you bought tickets to the zoo, enter its territory and find a corral with a sign "elephants" hanging on it.

You have been trying for a long time to see the elephants that hide behind the necks and humps of camels.

But, you don't see elephants.

You ask the zoo worker where are the elephants, and he shows you camels.

Do not rush to create a scandal and severely spoil your nervous system.

It is quite possible that this zoo came from Mongolia, and its director is an avid chess player.

In Mongolia, the elephant chess piece looks like a camel.

Why be surprised lol.

In Europe, the chess elephant, originally from the homeland of chess in India, is called an officer and a bishop.

I haven't seen a bishop with elephant tusks in church lol.
