White elephants are not really white - they can be pink, brown or gray, but not really white.  Yet showman P.T. Barnum was able to display a truly white elephant.  How had he managed this?

The answer he confided to an acquaintance/.  He had had the elephant covered in whitewash or paint.  This possibly was not good for the elephant, but Barnum got away with it.
