Why did old Jacob think Mr. McGuinty was lying about carrying water for elephants?

Because "carrying" water for elephants doesn't make sense (they drink over 50 gallons a day). You lead them to the water, not the other way around.

I had the same question -- yes, I can see carrying water would not be common, but it still seems it would be possible ( 10 trips with a 5-gallon bucket over an entire day). Why does saying that make him a liar -- instead of asking for more details (where and how much water did you carry?)
