Giraffes have long necks,
black tongues, and… cannot do this.
I think it would hurt.

People tend to stare at me when I wear this shirt, trying to figure out what it's supposed to be: A snail? Some sort of maze? But unlike some other designs of mine (that accursed bumblebee!) people usually get it quickly or just ask. It is, in fact, a giraffe. In my experience the confusion is of an ooh-fun-a-puzzle reaction rather than an I-don't-know-what-that-is-so-I'll-pretend-I-don't-see-it reaction. I've been told that this is one of my best works, if not THE best. I actually became very good friends with someone after she stared at me with a grin for half an hour. I thought she was flirting, but it was the giraffe, not me. Oh well. (The other day I told her I thought she was flirting that time we met. She scowled and groaned. She's not mad though.)

Giraffes actually can't really bend their necks at all, believe it or not. They certainly can't twist them around in a loop like this guy. If you watch a giraffe drinking from a pond, they spread their legs and the whole thing swings down. They have a special series of "valves", from what I've heard, that keep them from collapsing from blood flow problems while they drink.

I like to occasionally give a couple bucks to the Maasai tribe in Kenya, for their work protecting these majestic creatures. My visiting nurse, who is part of that tribe, tells me they semi-secretly care more about the tourism money than the animals themselves, which is predictable human thinking I guess, not to mention economically necessary for a poor country with little in the way of sustainable resources otherwise, but as long as we get to have these goofy looking things frolicking on the savannah, I really don't care what their motivation is.

I own a copy of this design on a green T-shirt. I've had at least one person react with shock and unease, "Why would you put that on a green shirt?!" Is there something wrong with that? People keep telling me to learn color theory but they all look good to me. Luckily, the shirts are available in a good variety of colors (including black or white) so you don't have to copy me. Whatever color, it seems to be a great conversation starter!
