So not cool. You killed my warm fuzzy vibe :(

I wonder if you could ride a giraffe? You'd need a massive breastplate and a huge mounting block, then some really long reins...

and why is that ugly???

Where a giraffe's back is at a very steep (like 45 degree or more) incline I'd say NO, you would not be physically able to stay on its back even if you hypothetically tamed one and overcame the reigns problem.

Giraffes don't just look funny, they act pretty funny, too:

"Another function of necking is sexual, in which two males caress and court each other, leading up to mounting and climax. Such interactions between males are more frequent than heterosexual coupling. In one study, up to 94% of observed mounting incidents took place between two males. The proportion of same sex activities varied between 30 and 75%, and at any given time one in twenty males were engaged in non-combative necking behaviour with another male. Only 1% of same-sex mounting incidents occurred between females."

Breastplate? Mounting block? Reins? You sound kinky.

Good point....you'd almost have to strap yourself on, which is just begging for a Darwin event.

You should see the backseat of my truck. I gave a classmate a ride and he got nervous. Something about the chaps, spurs, bits, and crop. We're not even going to talk about the harness ;)

Sue D. Nymme: I'm impressed that the giraffe was born more than once in 26 years.


Subtard, here. Yeah it is impressive. That's probably where the smile came from in the pic Third Day Mark posted. "I'm back again, y'all." That or, "U mad?"

Very funny guys, using my name in a pun. I'll eat anything that moos, oinks or clucks.
Say hello to my little friend,. Quickly though, since he'll be gone in a few minutes.


The animal slave jail point stands. A giraffe can run as fast as 35 mph, but not in a pen.

Do you think they WANT to run 35 mph? Pretty sure they only run top-speed when, you know, something's trying to eat them. I'd rather have a pen than hyenas chasing me.

Animal slave jail?
Ridiculous.
Giraffes can't pick cotton for shiat.

Also, the giraffe enclosure at the Cincinnati Zoo is huge.
