Cut elephant into small bite sized pieces, this will take about 2 months.
Add enough brown gravy to cover.
Cook over a large fire for 4 weeks.
This will serve about 3,000 people. If more are expected, 2 rabbits may be added, but do this only if necessary, as most people do not like to find hare in their stew!
***Disclaimer: Not an actual recipe, no elephants and rabbits were harmed during this joke!***
