A nice piece of gonzo journalism there. And I must say, a better giraffe than I could render...

Manny,

After reading about your evening, I had a flashback to one of my favorite books when I was a kid. Somehow the picture with the four giraffe's from this children's story just popped into my head. I still remember my Dad reading this book to me!



Very fond memories of that one. Thanks!

After clicking on some of the other pictures in the gallery I don't feel bad at all.

From Dylan Blackie...

"The giraffe joyfully blew his trumpet and continued to advance

while all the animals smiled and began to dance.

They showed the grass no mercy; they continued to thump it

all day in appreciation of the giraffe with the trumpet."
