Are you implying that elves are cool?

I'm more worried that he's implying that he has live elves in his fortress...

Not the way the implication works - consider the following two statements.

"If an animal doesn't need to be fed while it's in a cage, it's cool."
"If an animal is cool, it doesn't need to be fed while it's in a cage."

The first statement (which is false and not what Girlinhat said) is the one that implies that elves (assuming one considers them animals) are cool.
The second statement (which may also be false, but is basically what Girlinhat said) says merely that cool animals don't starve. Some lukewarm animals might not starve either, but the cool ones don't.

No, actually, I was implying it's cool to have elven prisoners.

"Alright kids, this is an elf!  Note the pointy ears and fair skin.  Any questions class?"
*child raises his hand*
"Yes, Urist McStudent?"
"Elves suck."
