The Elephant in the Room

I rather like elephants.

Earth’s largest land animal, they’re majestic, incredibly strong, gentle, family-oriented, have prodigious memories and, when they get ready to die, they go off to a secret place without fanfare.

What’s not to like?

‘Elephant in the room’ is a metaphor for something so obvious it’s difficult to miss. Or is it?
