batgirl was bemoaning the fact that her dog had chewed a leg off the paper maché elephant she bought from Michaels. Some of the other moderators and I were all trying to help her figure out what to do with the now-three-legged elephant, when someone suggested making it a pirate. All day I thought about that pirate elephant. I just had to make one of my own. I felt bad about cutting his little leg off, but I think he really loves his new peg leg.

I've named this little fellow Bertram. He'd like to think he's fierce, but who's he trying to fool with that newspaper hat?


He likes to think of this as his "good side":


Arrrrr, thanks for looking!

Where can I send my money so I can get one of your elephants each month until I have the entire collection?

I love it!

Thanks! I made the peg leg from Fimo clay and then glued it on with some handy-dandy E6000.  Smiley
