Maybe the Doctor saved him from ever actually having to endure the wretched stench of these headphones but, in the process, he may have accidentally forgotten to completely clear the timeline.  We may be all caught in a paradox of sorts where this never actually happened even though this record still remains. Maybe the stench on the headphones is something else, a sort of Krypton, that the Doctor could not endure. It may have killed him before he was able to finish his job.

 

Crap. This stuff must be potent. Double crap. Who now will keep all that wibbly, wobbly, timey, wimey ball of stuff in order?

I smell a rat.

 

I had a good smell of my own HD800. It smells as if it was being kept in a coffee shop in Amsterdam. If Bob Marley was alive today his would have had the same smell.

This is as good as ....The White Elephant Joke.....

 

Quote:
 

The White Elephant Joke.

Once upon a time there was a big game hunter who , in his travels came upon a white elephant.

Since he was almost out of food and ammunition , he took careful note of the location and battled his way back to civilisation.

When he had sufficiently recovered from the ordeal of his expedition, he determined to go back with sufficient provisions to bag a specimen.

As he didn't have enough funds to finance the expedition, he went about canvassing for support for the venture.

Naturally, all the well heeled and astute businessmen he propositiones laughed the concept off as a farce.

The result was that rumours quickly spread around the traps that his last trip had made him delusional and he had lost his marbles.

As a consequence of these scurrilous rumours, his livelihood of big game treks for amateur rich huntsmen had all dried up.

Within a short time he was down to his last few dollars, and in the bar of the local hotel drowning his sorrows with a cleansing ale.

 

He contemplated his future, and seeing that his reputation was shot, and no work was on the horizon, he fell into a morbid reverie.

He was contemplating suicide as the only way out of his dilemma, when a conversation nearby impinged upon his consciousness.

There were thes five well dressed businessmen debating the best way to engage in a worthwile safari for some good specimens of the local wildlife.

He could not contain himself, he entered the conversation and offered his services to them.

Upon hearing his name, they laughed at his proposal of organising their safari.

In desperation, to get their attention, he told them of the white elephant and how he was the only one that could ensure that they could bag one.

With that four of the businessmen left in fits of laughter and severe ridicule of even entertaining such a proposal.

 

The businessman left with the big game hunter told him that he was a fake.

He told the big game hunter that he was a billionare as well as an expert big game hunter himself.

He said that back in his mansion he had stuffed examples of every animal worthy of  capture, and that he shot them himself, from all over the world.

Moreover he said that he knew there was no such thing as a white elephant, or he would have bagged one by now.

Nevertheless, just in case this preposterous venture was genuine, and as he had nothing better to do, he would take up the proposal on one condition.

That condition was that he would get the first shot at the bleached pachyderm, if it really existed.

The condition was readily agreed to, and plans were expedited so that the safari could leave at daybreak on the morrow.

 

As it was late in the day the big game hunter requested the finances to hire some natives, provisions and the special bait for the white elephant.

When the funds were provided, he hired six natives, the food and ammunition, and then went to the local baker for the white elephant bait.

He ordered a large cream cake with a large strawberry on the top, and stipulated it should be ready at dawn. The baker said it would be ready.

As the sun slowly rose above the horizon in another glorious dawn the billionaire, natives and provisions were positioned on the porch of the hotel.

The awaited the arrival of the big game hunter and his precious parcel of the only bait that could attract the mythical white elephant.

They set off and headed for the dark and dense jungle for which Africa is so well known in a heightened sense of expectation and mild trepidation.

 

When they reached the edge of the town, they reached the Tanganyika River and passed over without incident and entered ant country.

After passing through ant country for a couple of days they entered anteater country and cuntinued on in single file.

After passing through anteater country for a couple of days they entered  meerkat country and continued on.

After passing through meerkat country for a couple of days they entered monkey country and continued on.

After passing through monkey country for a couple of days they entered gibbon country and continued on.

After passing through gibbon country for a couple of days they entered baboon country and continued on.

After passing through baboon country for a couple of days they entered chimpanzee country and continued on.

After passing through chimpanzee country for a couple of days they entered gorilla country and continued on.

After passing through gorilla country for a couple of days they entered elk country and continued on.

After passing through elk country for a couple of days they entered gnu country and continued on.

After passing through hippopotamus country for a couple of days they entered rhinoceros country and continued on.

After passing through rhinoceros country for a couple of days they entered giraffe country and continued on.

After passing through giraffe country for a couple of days they entered grey elephant country and continued on.

Everybody knows that grey elephants are nothing special.......

After passing through grey elephant country for a couple of days they entered white elephant country and continued on.

 

After walking around in white elephant country for a few hours they found a clearing amongst the bushes there.

The clearing was about 20 metres diameter and the grass was about waist high.

They placed the cream cake with the strawberry on top in the middle of the clearing and went and hid in the bushes,

 

Now, white elephant country is very special, and unlike you are to find anywhere in the world.

There is no sound there, no birds, no animals nor insects. The only noise there is that which you make yourself.

There is no wind to rustle the leaves of the bushes, nor is there any clouds passing overhead in the clear azure sky.

It is so quiet you could hear a pin drop, you could also hear yourself and the other safari members breathe.

The only movement there was the sun as it passed overhead during the day, and the moon at night. There wasn't even any heat haze.

 

So they waited guns ready and eyes peering around the clearing for any telltale signs of life. Nothing stirred.

The second day was just like the first.

And the third day was just like the second.

And the fourth day was just like the third.

And the fifth day was just like the fourth

And all this time,

There is no sound there, no birds, no animals nor insects. The only noise there is that which you make yourself.

There is no wind to rustle the leaves of the bushes, nor is there any clouds passing overhead in the clear azure sky.

It is so quiet you could hear a pin drop, you could also hear yourself and the other safari members breathe.

The only movement there was the sun as it passed overhead during the day, and the moon at night. There wasn't even any heat haze.

And the sixth day was like the fifth......

 

Sudenly there was the staccato sound of muffled footfalls in the distance.

Everyone snapped to attention. the billionaire and big game hunter were there hiding behind a bush with their guns cocked ready to shoot.

The natives stood huddled together in wide eyed anticipation of some impending holocaust, as natives are wont to do.

The footfalls grew louder and louder until the white elephant broke through the bushes and raced through the clearing at breakneck speed.

Upon reaching the centre of the clearing, the elephant raised it's white trunk and grabbed the large cream cake with the large strawberry on top.

Without even a moment's hesitation it shoved the cream cake with the strawberry on top into it's gaping maw and disappeared in the bushes on the other side.

The billionaire and big game hunter were flabberghasted at the sight.

They were so amazed they even forgot to shoot. The natives were now cowered under the bushes with wide white eyes, praying to their deities.

 

When they were able to compose themselves, they realised they only had enough provisions to make it back to town.

So they packed up what was left and headed back to civilisation, and started making plans for their return to bag that bleached beast.

 

After coming out of white elephant country they passed into grey elephant country.

Everybody knows that grey elephants are nothing special.......

They entered the town and made ready immediately for the next expedition.

The billionaire went and hired another six natives as well as a couple of other big game hunters to heighten their chances of a kill.

The big game hunter meanwhile, ordered more food and ammunition, then went to the local bakery.

He told the baker to bake another cream cake larger than the last one with a larger strawberry on top, and have it ready by daybreak.

As the sun slowly rose above the horizon in another glorious dawn the billionaire, natives and provisions were positioned on the porch of the hotel.

After walking around in white elephant country for about six hours they found a clearing amongst the large bushes there.

The clearing was about 40 metres diameter and the grass was about knee high.

They placed the cream cake with the strawberry on top in the middle of the clearing and went and hid in the large bushes,

 

Now, white elephant country is very special, and unlike you are to find anywhere in the world.

There is no sound there, no birds, no animals nor insects. The only noise there is that which you make yourself.

There is no wind to rustle the leaves of the large bushes, nor is there any clouds passing overhead in the clear azure sky.

It is so quiet you could hear a pin drop, you could also hear yourself and the other safari members breathe.

And all this time,

Still there is no sound there, no birds, no animals nor insects. The only noise there is that which you make yourself.

There is no wind to rustle the leaves of the large bushes, nor is there any clouds passing overhead in the clear azure sky.

It is so quiet you could hear a pin drop, you could also hear yourself and the other safari members breathe.

There is no sound there, no birds, no animals nor insects. The only noise there is that which you make yourself.

There is no wind to rustle the leaves of the medium size trees, nor is there any clouds passing overhead in the clear azure sky.

It is so quiet you could hear a pin drop, you could also hear yourself and the other safari members breathe.

The only movement there was the sun as it passed overhead during the day, and the moon at night. There wasn't even any heat haze.

 

So they waited guns ready and eyes peering around the clearing for any telltale signs of life. Nothing stirred.

The second day was just like the first.

And the third day was just like the second.

And the fourth day was just like the third.

And the fifth day was just like the fourth

And the sixth day was like the fifth......

Still there is no sound there, no birds, no animals nor insects. The only noise there is that which you make yourself.

And the twenty first day was just like the twentieth

And the twenty second day was just like the twenty first

Sudenly there was the staccato sound of muffled footfalls in the distance.

Everyone snapped to attention. the billionaire and big game hunters were there hiding behind a couple medium size trees with their guns cocked ready to shoot.

The natives stood huddled together in wide eyed anticipation of some impending holocaust, as natives are wont to do.

The footfalls grew louder and louder until the white elephant broke through the medium size trees and raced through the clearing at breakneck speed.

Upon reaching the centre of the clearing, the elephant raised it's white trunk and grabbed the large cream cake with the large strawberry on top.

Without even a moment's hesitation it shoved the cream cake with the strawberry on top into it's gaping maw and disappeared in the medium size trees on the other side.

The billionaire and big game hunters were transmogrified at the sight.

They were so amazed they even forgot to shoot. The natives were now cowered under the medium size trees with wide white eyes, praying to their deities.

 

When they were able to compose themselves, they realised they only had enough provisions to make it back to town.

So they packed up what was left and headed back to civilisation, and started making plans for their return to bag that pale pachyderm.

 

After coming out of white elephant country they passed into grey elephant country.

Everybody knows that grey elephants are nothing special.......

After passing through grey elephant country for a couple of days they entered giraffe country and continued on.

After passing through anteater country for a couple of days they entered ant country and continued on.

After passing through ant country for a couple of days they reached the Tanginyika River and passed over without incident.

 

They entered the town and made ready immediately for the next expedition.

The billionaire went and hired another six dozen natives as well as two dozen more available big game hunters to heighten their chances of a kill.

The big game hunter meanwhile, ordered more food and ammunition, then went to the local bakery.

He told the baker to bake another cream cake larger than the last one with a larger strawberry on top, and have it ready by daybreak.

As the sun slowly rose above the horizon in another glorious dawn the billionaire, natives and provisions were positioned on the porch of the hotel.

The awaited the arrival of the big game hunter and his precious parcel of the only bait that could attract the uncooperative white elephant.

They set off and headed for the dark and dense jungle for which Africa is so well known in a heightened sense of expectation and mild trepidation.

 

When they reached the edge of the town, they reached the Tanganyika River and passed over without incident and entered ant country.

After passing through ant country for a couple of days they entered anteater country and cuntinued on in single file.

After passing through grey elephant country for a couple of days they entered white elephant country and continued on.

 

After walking around in white elephant country for a couple of day they found a clearing amongst the large trees there.

The clearing was about a kilometer diameter and the grass was about 1cm high.

They placed the cream cake with the strawberry on top in the middle of the clearing and went and hid in the large trees,

 

Now, white elephant country is very special, and unlike you are to find anywhere in the world.

They entered the town and made ready immediately for the next expedition.

The billionaire went and hired another ten dozen natives as well as five dozen more available big game hunters to heighten their chances of a kill.

The big game hunter meanwhile, ordered more food and ammunition, then went to the local hardware store, as he had a brilliant idea.

He ordered six tons of gravel, three tons of sand and a ton of cement, and built a huge mock cream cake with a mock strawberry on top.

He painted it with cream flavoured paint, and the mock strawberry with strawberry flavoured varnish, and set it on a low wide trolley.

 

A fortnight later, as the sun slowly rose above the horizon in another glorious dawn the billionaire, natives and provisions were positioned on the porch of the hotel.

The awaited the arrival of the big game hunter and his precious parcel of the only fake bait that could attract the unsuspecting white elephant.

They set off and headed for the dark and dense jungle for which Africa is so well known in a heightened sense of expectation and mild trepidation.

 

When they reached the edge of the town, they reached the Tanganyika River but could not pass over.

The poor ageing ferry could not handle the fake cream cake with the ersatz strawberry on top.

So the billionaire had a two lane bridge built which could accomodate this collosal cream cake copy.

And so after the opening ceremony the intrepid hunters and natives crossed over dragging the fake bait behind them.

 

After dragging the bait through ant country for a couple of days they entered anteater country and cuntinued on in single file.

After dragging the bait through anteater country for a couple of days they entered  meerkat country and continued on.

After dragging the bait through giraffe country for a couple of days they entered grey elephant country and continued on.

Everybody knows that grey elephants are nothing special.......

After dragging the bait through grey elephant country for a couple of days they entered white elephant country and continued on.

 

After walking around in white elephant country for a week, they found a clearing amongst the huge trees there.

The clearing was about a kilometer and a half in diameter and the grass was like the top of a billiard table. You could putt on it.

They placed the cream cake with the strawberry on top in the middle of the clearing and went and hid in thehuge trees,

 

Now, white elephant country is very special, and unlike you are to find anywhere in the world.

It was getting to the point where their provisions were now desperately low, and they had to pack up and leave or starve.

So, they packed up and were just heading back - and suddenly...

There was the staccato sound of muffled footfalls in the distance.

Everyone raced back to their positions and waited.

The billionaire and big game hunters were there hiding behind a copse of huge trees with their guns cocked ready to shoot.

The natives stood huddled together in wide eyed anticipation of some impending holocaust, as natives are wont to do.

The footfalls grew louder and louder until the white elephant broke through the huge trees knocking them over and uprooting them like weeds.

It raced through the jungle at breakneck speed with trees being flung from it's path as it charged like a runaway locomotive for the fake cake containing clearing, and entered it.

Upon reaching the centre of the clearing, the elephant raised it's huge white trunk and grabbed the large cream cake with the large strawberry on top.

But the fake cake with the fake strawberry on top didn't budge. The huge white mammoth was stopped in it's tracks with a bewildered glaze in it's beady eyes.

The billionaire and big game hunters were absolutely awestruck and entranced at the sight.

They were so amazed they even forgot to shoot. The natives were gone, never to be seen again....

There was no thought of shooting as the billionare and the big game hunters dropped their rifles and stared in slack-jawed amazement at the spectacle before them.

 

The white elephant, now recovered from the experience of being halted in full charge by it's prey, glared ominously at it's prey for a moment.

It then raised it's trunk, and with a malevolent swing, struck the fake cake and a large piece broke off and fell to the turf.

The pachyderm picked it up and threw it high in the air, As it descended the elephant opened it's cavernous craw and the piece fell in.

The elephant proceeded to take another swipe with the same result, and it was also despatched in the behemoth's big belly.

This continued until the whole concrete cake was consumed and only the sinister strawberry was left, lying on the ground as an appetising morsel.

The billionaire and big game hunters could only stand frozen and watch the goings-on with incredulous gazes.

The wondrous white denizen then grasped the fake concrete strawberry and flung it high into the air.

As fake food came barrelling down the elephant once again opened it's monstrous mouth and swallowed it.

The elephant stood there appearing to chew the concrete strawberry and a look of dismay crossed the pachyderm's dial.

There seemed to be something terribly amiss in the elephant's endeavour to swallow the strawberry.

As the beast gasped for breath, it's shiny white hide started turning a rosy red.

The billionaire, upon seeing this, thought that a red elephant mounted in his den would be a far better prize than a white one.

The elephant continued it's laboured breathing as it continued trying to chew. And it began to turn from red to purple as in an apoplexy.

The billionaire thought this was far better as purple was his second favourite colour.

The elphant was becoming extremely distressed at this stage, and began turning blue.

The billionaire was extatic at this sight as blue was his favourite colour, and he could hardly wait to see what would transpire next.

The white elephant's face then transformed into show of extreme panic, and then it fell on it's side and it's whole hairy hide turned a dull grey.

Everybody knows that grey elephants are nothing special................
