Well, the answer appears to be that there are some people who actively like the elephants, and no-one who actively dislikes them, so I shall post the occasional elephant for special occasions until I run out . . . which will, I think, be a little while yet !
Meanwhile, here is a photo of a number of them, queuing along Coventry Street to get into Leicester Square, which I think is actually rather fun for the sake of the somewhat unexpected pedestrian . . . this was about 07:30 on a Sunday morning, and (in perfect English) he asked a policeman where Leicester Square was, and on being told set off briskly towards it.
I’d love to know why . . .
