Knowing what we know about Freudian Psychology, where is the knife in this picture, and what does it mean?

Cutting the tail off the elephant he killed?

It's not the same as spray painting graffiti on the Mona Lisa, but it's close enough.

That is Donald Trump, Jr. in 2011.

He and his siblings are what I call "Ameri-trash."

Entitled youngsters in possession of a ton of of inherited money searching the world for ways to spend it.

"Ameri-trash" affords a wider definition, with due respect

Am fortunate in that the American friends I made over my lifetime are world-class citizens for their multi-cultural empathy and appreciation of the culture of other peoples and nations.

Want an extreme example ? Invited to a wedding in NYC some 5-years ago, the pretty Jewish bride being the daughter of an old American friend and the groom, a Tunisian Muslim brought up and educated in French Canada.

Exception being made for the brideīs intimate dinner for just her family and close family friends, the following reception in the Village (NYC) some days later plus the main nuptial reception in a NYC 5-star hotel....felt more like a night in the Magreb than a night anywhere in the West !

The guests (and friends) who joined the party from Brazil just couldnīt believe their eyes that an American family could be so welcoming to their foreign-born son-in-law !

Of course, my friendīs father was an undergraduate at Stanford with Sandra Day OīConnor, his mother hails from a cultured family of liberal professionals of every imaginable discipline...., it is education, knowledge, world savvy, some measure of goodness in their hearts, definitely not just the money that maketh the person ......

With the speed that some people can accrue material gains in the US and eventually join hands up with newbies who 'talk smart'.....some of the most offensive and uncultured people in any country on this planet (percentagewise) are from this wider group that we in Brazil consider Ameri-trash.

Which is not to say that we do not have our own equivalent (Brasi-lixo), but rest assured that percentage wise it is considerably lower besides keeping a lower profile ;)

I kinda think Donald Jr is getting a bum rap based on this pick. He is a life long hunter, a bow hunter in upstate NY, and in Africa was licensed by the government and told where to hunt with a local licensed guide. I'm not a hunter, but I know several who are, and they are more knowledgeable about conservation than most anti hunting pencil pushers are. Give the guy a break. He's not his father.

Is that correct?

Are there enough elephants extent to be killing them for sport and cutting off their tails?

FWIW I am not opposed to environmentally responsible hunting. For instance: I think the bag limit for white tail deer in Ohio and Kentucky should be vastly increased.

It has been many years, but I have done a lot of small game hunting. I don't see trophy hunting just to show that you can kill something.

Elephants are over-protected anyway.

Of course, that's easy for me to say, from up here in my ivory tower.

So what is it then? other than you can kill something? The weapons have made the strugle beteween the beast and human an absoulute joke. Perhaps they should drop a bomb in an area, and show the kill as hunted game. This is really heroic. ( in Ceasars games).

There are plenty of very tough hunts, and some not so tough.

Some of those 'jokes' would have you stop laughing after just a couple minutes in.

The elephants win about 500 times a year - but that's in an even match.

Bow hunter eh, so why didn't he use the bow?
There's a thread about talking of 'Ameri-trash', but every country has them. Some of ours are in parliament.

Serious question - how often does the animal "win" in hunts like the ones pictured here (ie by killing the hunter)???

Probably not often enough, however Aussie Crocodiles remind humans that they are still part of the food chain.

Yeah, I've had some big game fisherman tell me all about the great contest between man and beast. I haven't ever been bothered to point out that it's actually a contest between a 35 foot boat, twin turbo diesels, $20,000 of electronics, four crew, $5,000 worth of fishing tackle and $500 of fuel against a beast. Giving yourself that sort of an edge with heavy metal is sort of like beating your family dog from inside a Tiger tank. If people want a contest against an animal to prove something, why do they demand a technological advantage?

Anyone seen the video of a bloke on a fishing kayak 8 klm off Sydney heads playing a black Marlin?
That's a bit more even.

I did knew a pro hunter who was shooting a very large number of feral pigs for croc food. One day he decided to give a big boar a chance. The boar versus said hunter ( and his little dog) and a homemade short stabbing spear. The pig lost .

Okay, let's try again:

In Freudian terms, where is the knife in this picture, and what does it represent?

Every time I see a photo of a foolishly grinning lout smiling alongside his/her trophy kill, I want to take a baseball bat to their mouth.

They say, well, some say, it ain't the size of the tool, it's how you use it. Apparently, he's been using his somewhere around an elephant's butt.

I've been in my share of tough "hunts" it doesn't give you the right to cut off ears and grin as a moron for a picture.
