It's OK, YouTube. We all get better as we get older.

10 years ago today, one of YouTube's creators, Jawed Karim, uploaded the site's first video. It's an 18-second clip of him talking about elephants at the zoo. I think he's trying to make a dick joke. It does not go well. I mean, it doesn't go poorly. But if he is indeed trying to make a joke, it's just not funny.

Anyway, YouTube grew up and is now middle-aged by Internet standards, and thankfully, with that wisdom comes a deluge of better elephant videos.

Like the baby elephant that falls and gets helped up by his parents.

Or the elephant that gets a lullaby to go to bed.
