Pink elephant?

Everyone is most likely familiar with the saying "a pink elephant in the room"..This is an expression for an obvious truth that is being ignored or goes unaddressed. The idiomatic expression also applies to an obvious problem or risk no one wants to discuss. The term refers to a question, problem, solution, or controversial issue that is obvious, but which is ignored by a group of people, generally because it causes embarrassment or is taboo. So off course we had to pick the elephant because it is so big that it would be hard to miss.. especially in a little room full of people. But what would happen if we suddenly had a massive pink elephant in our society? or world? or universe? well if that is the case then I think we should take notice of it! and start discussing it. from now on I will start a little entry every week where I will point out a few pink elephants for you. Consider it a pink five safari experience.
