I guessed all five got two.
Pity there wasn't a question:
In the Thai language, how many different classifiers are there for elephants?
There's four.

edit: It depends on if they are:

Herds of elephants
Government-registered elephants
Domesticated elephants
Wild elephants

4 out of 5

 

I guess only 200 elephants left in wild

 

I have to honest

I didn't love the elephants the only time I saw them

I didn't love their skin

 

But I want to go back to a proper sanctuary and spend time with them 

Especially some babies

'I didn't love the elephants the only time I saw them'  I didn't love the one I almost ran into on my motorbike.
I was going along Soi Siam Country Club in Pattaya. As I went round a sharp bend there was a mahout walking an elephant across the road.
I ask you - crossing a road on a bend!

Q. Why did the elephant cross the road?
A. To try and get Bluesofa to hit it with his motorbike.

3/5 

Knew a couple, the rest were guesses.

I love elephants, plenty here in Ayutthaya but sadly kept for tourists to ride on . Occasionally get to see them at bath time near the gf’s go to Wat.

I got 4/5. It would have been a max but they missed the question 'what is a huge grey animal with a trunk and a leg on every corner?' 😁

go to Wat.

Who wouldn't like to see the gf with an elephant in the bath (must be a pretty big tub). 

And glad to hear that you immediately repent your sins for doing so, by going to the Wat.  😋

Some might have even suggested that i was hinting that the gf is the elephant !!

Probably need to sort that Wat refuge poste haste after that statement !! Although thankfully contrary to a popular saying she does have a short memory 😯

On the topic of elephants, do you remember the old 'would you give your last Rolo' ads.
The elephant one was a classic.

An elephant never forgets!

Excellent! I remember Rolo and the adverts, but don't remember the elephant one.

I remember the first time I saw that add, just as I'd taken a gulp of tea, half of which got splattered across the table, whilst choking on the rest and bursting with laughter at the same time.
