Got the final, although "elephant" first directed me to Eric Blair before I remembered the category.

Request seen: I was in the clam working with "purse" club. Head slapper when prizefight was given.

I just caught up the week tonight.

Add one to the purse club, but I am always ambushed by my neglect of the categories and themes.

I don't know why I know ANYTHING about Kipling, but I deduced there must be a snake involved to have a Riki Tiki Tava Mongoose character. Which I only know from a song snippet somehow. This is some kind of osmosis knowledge I did not seek, but it worked out for this FJ.

I usually try to be attuned to the categories, but blurted "purse" this time.

The greeting card that made that famous used to be in the Guinness Book of World Records as the most sold--6 million copies, I think. It may still be in there.

My wife and I both pulled out the "I've never Kippled" line upon seeing this FJ.

Dang. If I'd known that umpty-ump years ago I could have one-upped a very smug teacher.

But this is one reason I love Jboard.

The best I could do for FJ was "Who was the author of The Jungle Book?" Which, of course, is the non-J! version of the clue. Very frustrating that I couldn't pull his name. I briefly flirted with Roald Dahl, then had to eliminate him since I was pretty sure he was firmly in the 20th century.

Why would grown men fight over a purse? Not because it's a nice Gucci purse, but for what's inside the purse. :P
