Well, what else would you call an emo elephant? And he'll never forget his angst, either. Link

Yeah I agree with Saccade...the idea that the pictured elephant is suffering could simply be that...an idea that is generated by the caption. For all we know, he/she was just scratching his/her head...on the other hand schadenfreude is kinda ugly so laughing at something that is unhappy is kinda uncool...

Did everyone here who is upset by this image have the same reaction when they saw lolrus? ( walrus with a bucket)

Because that was an animal in captivity with an implied emotional state based on text printed over it.

How does anyone here even know if this elephant is in fact in captivity? Oh you saw some high walls and a gate, that 's brilliant. Those are only used for captivity in Asia, or so I've heard.

As for it being actually depressed, it's only implied by the text, we actually know NOTHING about that context of this photograph.

Craig, we are all aware of the powerful context of a concentration camp, whereas here, you just made an assumption about what's happening. So no, they are not alike. You just compared horrific cruelty with something that only has implied context.

I am a huge elephant fan and I know they can become legitimately depressed, so I don't find this image funny, but some of you are blowing this image way out of proportion.

If you take a photo of someone waiting for a bus and staring at their feet, you could easily slap something about depression over it. But it in no way means that person is ACTUALLY depressed, especially if it's intended as a joke.

and this joke is irrelephant, it was made long ago lol.

Dude, you guys are so lame. This is a funny picture! Calm the crap down. Take the joke as it comes and laugh. What, are y'all avid PETA members? Geez, give it a break.

I giggled. So freakin' sue me.
