London thinks itself pretty cool at the moment because it's got Elephants. Well I say pah!! Who needs elephants when you've got COWS (below, obviously)! In the meadow! Well, Midsummer Common to be exact. But it is slap bang in the middle of town so it counts as the swinging heart of the city, definitely.
Infinitely more cool I think you'll agree. That said, I'm sure the London elephants don't make a trip to get some milk from the shops a trial of perception skills as you try to avoid the *ahem* bovine ablutions.
