Ali Babaar, is just a little to close to last year's ill fated attempt to make it entirely comfortable for anybody. We've had communication from his agent saying that red really isn't Speckles's colour, that there is to be no mahout or else, there will be no trunk climbing and Cinderelephant tends to involve mice, which would prove to be a bad, and possibly fatal, idea.
