Giraffe is used here in quite the literal sense. While I'm still questioning the probability Dill the giraffe typing on a laptop...we've seen it here before. Giraffes are quite tech-savvy.

My neigh-bor (too much?) is a horse that can count. Together we are unstoppable.

Tall poppy syndrome? Yeah, that pretty much covers it. No matter how good we may be, the world is just filled with so much hatred for my people (i.e. giraffes).

Colleen, it takes a real pro to rhyme 'behalf' three times in a single four-line stanza and make it look easy. You're good.


In honor of the late great Bee Gees, here is my retort:


I started a gaffe,
Which started the whole world crying,
But I didn't see,
That the gaffe was on me.

I started to chaff,
Which started the whole world laughing,
Oh, if I'd only seen,
That the gaffe was on me.

I looked at the giraffe,
Running my hand over my gun,
And I cut him in half,
But the gaffe was on me. (YUCK!)

Till I finally cried,
Which started the whole world living,
Oh, if I'd only seen,
That the gaffe was on me.



SUMMERTIME KICKS ASS!!!

If you are reading this and have come to the proper conclusion that this how civilized people settle their differences, i.e. through farcical slanderous poetry, then you are right (just click on Recommend as KB Document at the top of the page, no winky face required).

Peace in the middle east can't be far behind, at least for the giraffes.


p.s. Colleen, I don't know how you timed it, but I have I feeling this thread was a Kenny Dill trap, i.e. just way too much fun. It is as if you premeditated, "I'm gonna catch me some Dill." Well done.

I tell you, it wasn't at all good timing. It was merely the result of months and months of stalking you, honing in on your precise peak moments of KDP activity.

And what a beautiful raffist tribute to the late, great Bee Gees. (Just pretend there's a link here. It's been too long, I've forgotten.)

And as Kenny Dill previously mentioned, folks...there is nothing left to see here.

The giraffes have been massacred.
The poetry has been read
If I had my way
We'd all be dead
Like a Bee Gee.
Screw the rhyme.
This poem is the sh*t

OK, now I understand my mission

your mission is to head up the Amazon River and swallow the Hippo.

swallow the hippo?

he's out there eating BGs beyong any pail of snails on a straight razor.

swallow, with extreme prejudice

I took the mission, WTF else was I going to do but I was not looking forward to the indigestion afterwards.

    • you know the rest - The Hippo, The Hippo

Is it wiser in the mind to pass a Hippo through a rear aperture than to bark at a crow 3 times?

Did you say hippo? That's the most dangerous animal in the entire world.

Are there hippos in this forum?

sneaks around corner and hides, waiting for Dill to lure hippos away

a daft giraffe can catch a draft,
unlike a horse or a goat,
we're talking big sore throat

I probably haven't had quite enough beer yet this Friday evening . . .

plus I understand Mandarin Chinese better than poetry.

With that said . . . wtf, pray tell, is a "Giraffe?"

(In this context, of course, I HAVE been to the friggin zoo)

A giraffe, in this context, is the result of me drinking a little too much wine while sitting alone at home on the internet last night, waiting for my ranking to refresh. I'm pretty sure I was being quite literal, for I know no alternative definition for the term giraffe.

As with most things I say, one needn't look too deep. There isn't much complexity here in this head of mine.

;)

Don't worry about the hippos. I have a feeling everything will be alright.

Hi colleen, the simple answer is to return the book. (If thats what it is) If highly over priced anyway.
