Personally, Johnny likes Eric as an Elephant. How many pachyderms are in the papers, compared to humans? Maybe give eric a regular supporting cast, including a human best friend, maybe a girl Eric is hot for, but for obvious reasons can't get. That way, you can work in jokes that stem from people AND ones that stem from Eric(the beach joke was funny, maybe a "oooo, nice trunk!" joke from a girl, memory jokes-Eric maybe can't remember shit!). IJO's...<P>Hope J.Diddy gave you food for thought. Or at least gas...<P>"If it ain't Throbbin', it ain't Johnny"
