Until the power comes back on this is the only way you can get a shower. Helps with the laundry as well!

Short Round gets to laugh at Willie on the way to Pankot Palace. Indiana muses that the elephant thinks Willie needs a bath, too. Kathleen "Kate" Capshaw Spielberg muses that 26 takes of this scene before she is in costume seems a bit much. She is told that she must repeat the scene until Short Round's laugh seems spontaneous. Short Round laughs at that thought and the director yells, "that's it, now one more take in costume !"

Just because you're on my back, doesn't mean you have to miss all the fun.

You left off the ".com" when you placed the order and got it from the Amazon instead.

I seen a peanut stand, heard a rubber band
I seen a needle that winked its eye
But I be done seen 'bout ev'rything
When I see a elephant....hose his passenger with his nose

I seen a front porch swing, heard a diamond ring
I seen a polka-dot railroad tie
But I be done seen 'bout ev'rything
When I see a elephant.... hose his passenger with his nose

And in case you get muddy during the Elephant Ride, it comes with a free shower.
