Elephant Jokes is the 12th studio album released by singer-songwriter Robert Pollard on August 11, 2009, and the 8th full-length album to be released by Pollard (along with several EP's and singles) since the break-up of his band Guided by Voices in 2004. Unlike recent Pollard albums, Todd Tobias does not play all the instruments on Elephant Jokes, as Pollard plays some guitar on this album.
