Ramooji Toochakaa – Jokes

If you are Gujarati and you had a privilege of growing up in India then you have heard the “Haathi ane Kiddi” (Elephant and an ant) jokes.

Here is one that my 5-year-old niece recently told me,

In Gujarati:

Ek Divas ek Haathi ane ek Keedi santaakookadi ramataa hataa.
Haathi e keedi ne kidhoo tu santai ja.
Keedi jayi ne ek mandir ma santaayi gayi.
Haathi e tene pakadi paadi.
Kevi rite Haathi ne Khabar padi ke keedi kya chhe?
………?
Karan ke Haathi e mandir ni bahaar keedi na champal joyi lidhaa…..:)

In English:

One day an elephant and an ant were playing hide and seek (yes this is an unrealistic part but that is part of the joke)
Elephant asked Ant to go hide.
Ant decided to hide in a temple.
Elephant came to seek and found the ant.
how did the elephant know where the ant was?
………?
Because he saw the ant’s sandals outside the temple…….:)
