Actually, that technically isn't an elephant. Yes, you and I call that an elephant, and standard resources might call it an elephant, but it doesn't meet his arbitrary, unique, and unexpressed requirements for being called an elephant, so he's going to tell you that you're wrong.

I had a 3-legged dog once. I suppose I technically shouldn't have called it a dog, since dogs have 4 legs.
