What is Brown and Sticky?

AnElephant's best friend, two sticks and a conker

AnElephant’s best friend, two sticks and a conker

AnElephantCant pretend that he is normal
Sometimes he does get up to daft tricks
When he and his chum for a lark
Go exploring in the park
They both make sure that they carry beauty sticks

A boy can’t really have an adventure
Or AnElephant who supports his endeavour
Without a multi-functional tool
And Jack is no fool
He knows that to be caught empty handed is not clever

A stick is handy for cleaning out ditches
And keeping jaggy leaves out of your face
If it’s a long one
You can throw it for fun
But a little twig is hidden in a double secret place

It can be used for capturing dragons
Or zapping bad guys with its hydrosonic rays
It may be a magic wand
Or crack the ice on the pond
It gets utilised in about three thousand ways

Sometimes the scientists do mystic experiments
They sit a stick on a fence and watch for a wiggle or a wobble
This is sometimes quite dull
When the wind has a brief lull
But at least it keeps them out of trouble

A good stick can be used as a golf club
Or a bow for arrows or a bridge over a stream
And they are easy to hide
When the daring duo go inside
To enjoy their weekly helping of multi-flavoured ice cream

If you want to watch a really tedious but, in AnElephant’s clearly biased opinion, quite hilarious 100-second video, click here, but don’t say you have not been warned.

    AnElephant and Jack looked to be having fun
    On the fence you see in the video
    Trying to make the sticks
    Come up with some tricks
    Which we all heard on the audio

    Well I sat in absolute fascination watching the wobbly sticks… I’m not sure if the experimentation actually proved anything but wow I was fascinated… (Go on, say something, even if it’s rude!) you told me to even if I was informed about being warned like an idiot I still watched all the way through wondering what the end result would be… (I had a smile on my face the whole way through)… maybe if they’d thrown the sticks the Bulldog might have given chase…who knows now…

Go on, say something, even if it's rude!
