walktoanarcade: Aren't giraffes getting kind of rare thanks to a-hole poachers?

I don't believe they can't pull the strings to get that "little guy" a home.

Maggie_Luna: Is it not possible to castrate a giraffe like with dogs and horses?


The dogs can't reach and the horses don't eat meat. Why not just use a scalpel?

Damn that's harsh.
But I suppose if a dog could jump that high it might be able to do it...

It's kinda like Butthole Surfers.  Do they surf buttholes or are they buttholes that surf?

Wow, I love surprise good news. Thanks. :) Still, I am against killing a healthy animal for weak reasons(so don't let it mate).

Some, might say, a fate worse than death,,,


oooh good point :(

And now for a joke: a Koala walks into a bar, orders a beer and nachos. He eats the nachos, but doesn't take a sip of his beer, then suddenly gets up, produces a pistol and shoots the piano player dead.  The outraged bartender jumps over the bar and grabs the koala's arm and demands:Why did you DO THAT?! What's wrong with you?!"  to which the koala looks at him in the eyes and says:"Hey, buddy, I'm a koala, get a dictionary." and with that he left.

The confused bartender finds his dictionary and finds:


"Koala; noun, a marsupial that eats, shoots, and leaves."

Why not auction off a license to hunt it and then sell the meat to Japan? When life hands you a lemon... Amirite?

I kind of understand. They don't want him to knock boots with any of his sisters. I support this idea; mainly because the alternative is white giraffes, with purple eyes.

// you wouldn't want to wake the dragon?
