A: With a red elephant gun.

Q: How do you shoot a white elephant?

A: First dig three holes.

Fill the first with peanuts, the second one the bottom half with peanuts and the top half with hay, and the third completely with hay.

The white elephant will come to the first hole and see the peanuts, which he loves, and eat them all. When he gets to the second hole, he'll see hay, which he doesn't like, but he'll smell the peanuts so he'll eat all the hay to get to the peanuts.

Once they're all gone he'll get to the third hole and he won't see or smell peanuts, but since the other two had peanuts, he'll eat all the hay hoping to come to some peanuts. When he gets to the bottom and realizes there aren't any peanuts, he'll get so mad he'll turn red and you can shoot him with the red elephant gun.
