[@371617,NCCindy] Exactly, Elephants have Trunks😄

[@546016,Gusman] To be quite honest the UK Term Boot makes no more sense to me than the USA Term Trunk. That said, language doesn't necessarily make sense.

For even greater fun ... I studied French in school with a teacher from Quebec ... I learned that French as spoken in France vs Quebec is even more different than English in the USA vs English in the UK. I didn't realize that until I spent a month in France for work and people kidded me about having a French Canadian accent.
