greedy and smelly with bad habits

(new elephant teapot by Gary Rith)

I figure if my dog and cat could talk, or any animal, like an elephant, they would describe humans as greedy and smelly with bad habits.  Exhibit A:  smoking! And cats are sensible enough to bury their poo.  Elephants don't want to take over the world, they just want to be cute and take care of their families. I often think that if humans drive humans to extinction, the world will shrug and move on, with cockroaches and rats vying to be the next big dinosaurs or humans had been....

BUT, you know, humanity is not all bad all the time, we can try to make something beautiful right?  Something makes us smile and laugh? Like an elephant teapot, just out of my kiln...
