If you ever have cause to varnish your elephant, don't think too much about the fact that you are, indeed, varnishing your elephant.

Because it really sounds like it ought to be a euphemism for something.

When I was younger, my family saw a few Shakespeare performances together. Every time we saw "A Midsummer Night's Dream" I would get a terrible urge to go up and smack Robin Goodfellow in the face with a fish. So, determined to satisfy the urge, the next time we went to that play I made sure to actually bring one. It wasn't, I'll have you note, a trout or a cod or a mackerel, but instead it was a largemouth bass. I didn't think the type of fish was very important when I was snagging it out of the fridge, although I should have been a bit more thoughtful about this, as you will see. (In fact, the whole idea could probably have done with more thought, but I digress...) So, it was during the crucial last scene that I got up and made my move, and smacked that sprite right across the chops! In the confusion that resulted, I made my way back to my seat, and sat there looking as innocent as possible. Of course, my parents were furious. I tried to allay my guilt by claiming that it was my brother's idea, and that he had put me up to it. But... it didn't work, and I got doubly punished for bassing the Puck.
