Yabbadaba doo! Ado! UNP hoo!

Whilst we can understand that kids do love The Flintstones we can't understand the need for elephants in this situation.
The Flintstones are not associated with elephants.
We think that this a shrewd way of influencing the future voters of the country by associating elephants (and therefore the UNP) with cartoon characters that they love.
We believe it is called subliminal advertising.
Since the UNP came back to power elephants have been turning up in all sorts of unusual situations!
Somehow or the other "Maithree!" hasn't got the same ring as "Wilma!"
