  • Elephant in the room" is an English metaphorical idiom
    for an obvious truth that is being ignored or goes
    unaddressed. The idiomatic expression also applies
    to an obvious problem or risk no one wants to discuss.

    It is based on the idea that an elephant in a room would
    be impossible to overlook; thus, people in the room
    who pretend the elephant is not there have chosen
    to avoid dealing with the looming big issue.

    ELEPHANT? ELEPHANT? WHAT ELEPHANT? I DO NOT SEE ANY ELEPHANT! EVERYTHING HERE IS FINE, JUST FINE!
