[Sca-cooks] A Feast Menu for Commentary

Serena asked about what could hang off the elephant's trunk.  Well, just 
about anything that a trunk could pick up.  Actual elephants have been 
used to pick up tree trunks to clear paths.  I had envisioned the trunk 
curling up around the handle of something like a bucket.

More crazy ideas... How about a figure of the Baron sitting in the 
howdah?  How about the elephant's tail curled around and holding the 
baronial standard?  Perhaps the poop could be in baronial colors.  There 
certainly could be a large (blanket/fabric covering) draped over the 
elephant (something like a large saddle blanket) decorated in baronial 
colors or with the baronial arms.

If doing a sugar paste figure of the baron is too labor-intensive, what 
about a small photo, cut out around his shape, and attached to a flat 
piece of sugar paste, bent to sit in the howdah... or standing alongside 
the elephant...  A 2-D body might work...

How crazy can we get since we aren't at Pennsic?  (First one I've missed 
in 22 years.)
