Bart enters a popular radio station competition and wins a prize of his choice. It's down to either an elephant, or $10,000. The presenters had predicted that the caller would choose the money, as nearly every sane person would. But Bart picks the gag prize, and despite Bill & Marty's pleading for him to accept the cash, they had no choice but to give him the elephant. "Stampy" sends the Simpsons into a financial crisis though, and they are forced to sell the elephant. An ivory dealer quickly jumps at the opportunity, and Homer agrees to the sale. However Bart sets Stampy free, where he finds a nice home at an animal refuge.
