To Catch A Heffalump

What is a Heffalump you ask?
A Heffalump is a cute and cuddly elephant type creature that is often purple, pink, or blue and lives in the 100 acre wood, where it is mistakenly believed to generally wreck all kinds of havoc. But this could not be further from the truth!
Heffalumps are shy and gentle creatures who love to laugh and eat Rumpledoodles (Heffalump cookies).
They are not to be confused with Woozles, which are very sneaky, or Wockets, that are often kept in pockets.
Although this happy beast generally gets the blame for stealing Winnie The Pooh's honey it really is not guilty of such a crime.
Because you see, Heffalumps are not all that fond of honey at all.
In fact, if one were to try and capture a Heffalump, one might want to use orange slices.
There's a rumor going around that a certain purple Heffalump has a weakness for juicy orange slices. . .
And I may or may not have been witness to such a thing. :)
