Collecting Elephants:

Once we spent a week's vacation in the Virgin Islands. We shared several discussions with a couple who were about our age and rather well off. I was fascinated to discover that he had become a collector of elephant figurines. "That must be really interesting!" I volunteered. "No," he said ruefully, "Pretty soon you've collected your four basic types of elephant." (Sorry, I never found out what the four types were.)
