I Must Be Descended From Royalty

Written By: Sy - Sep• 11•13

Really, I think I must, because I was reading about how the term “White Elephant” came from a practice of the kings of Siam, whereas the king would bestow the gift of a white elephant on someone whom he didn’t like.

A gift from the king could not be refused and the upkeep of the elephant would impose a heavy financial burden on the recipient of this gift and might even result in their financial ruin.

After reading this I thought I must be descended from royalty because that is, totally, my sense of humor.
