Brilliant. It looks like the Polish meaning may have evolved from the Czech one (I mean, probably the meaning in Polish used to be similar to the Czech one and then they specialized in different directions).

This site pretty much covers the subject of proximity between Polish and Czech languages.

In Slovakian dupe slon means "the elephant stamps (his feet)"; this song is a kids nursery.
Only problem that dupe slon sounds very nasty in Polish (as dupa means "asshole").

Actually, "dupa" has several meanings in Polish, btw.
