Что делал слон, когда пришел Наполеон? - What was the elephant doing when Napoleon came? (Наполеон пришел, а слон в это время что-то делал.) Что делал слон, когда пришел на поле он? - What did the elephant do when it came to a/the field? (Сначала пришел, потом что-то делал.) По-русски игра слов - "делал" может пониматься как "был в процессе", а также как "начал делать".
