Because you'll scare them off before you can get the chance to help.
Charming story; it made me smile. Sometimes weird ideas lead to good deeds.
Self-regard leads to selflessness?
Of course, one wonders about what aspect of the toileting experience provoked the idea. Some sort of analogy to a giraffe's neck, maybe?Heh.
One wonders, but doesn't really want to picture it. PLEASE RINSE MY BRAIN!
Paddy, your avatar is just great, by the way. Such a pretty, happy picture.
Giraffe's are always willing to stick their necks out for others.
Hey, you want happy avatars?Look over there --->That guy is ALWAYS smiling.
Imagine how this origin story is going to play in the movies. Ben Stiller will need to make this one....
Wiki:"The giraffe's prehensile tongue is about 50 cm (20 in) long. It is purplish-black in color, perhaps to protect against sunburn, and is useful for grasping foliage as well as for grooming and cleaning the animal's nose."
Never let a giraffe French-kiss you.

Bad Giraffe: Dress as a giraffe and scare the wits out of people at night.
Why not dress as a human and get a job?
If anyone would like to see the good giraffe, he's on you tube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IHZieLzQ7LY&feature=plcpHe's a great guy, following though on a simple but brilliant idea.Enjoy!
Cue Eddie Izzard's contrary point of view about the morality of giraffes in 3...2...1...
I'm not a saint, or anything close, but one thing I've learned is that I never regret taking time to do something nice, or even say something nice. I do wonder though, why it seems so hard at times.

Naturally...how bad to be a good giraffe.
Was alcohol involved with this decision?Not with the doing good deeds bit, but the costume choice.
That's when I shave.
"Was alcohol involved with this decision?Not with the doing good deeds bit, but the costume choice."The costume is a great choice if one wants to attract attention. Then the person can be seen from the distance.
... although I wonder how tall this guy is.
Not unlike the Lone Ranger, but for life's trivialities.
I never met a giraffe I didn't like.
Damned Scottish furries.
People with jobs think of this too - nearly every time we go to the loo, but we are too busy to get started.
Everything is wonderful about this guy, but for one thing. He has, and uses, a drum. Forewarned.
Geoffrey from Toys "R" Us should sue the crap out of him--or beat it out of him.
Why not a unicorn?Then you don't have to specify that you're a "good" one. You could leave a trail of skittles behind, too.
No true Scotsman would do such a thing.
nicely played, somefeller.
Not quite as inspiring as Martin Luther writing his theses while sitting on the can...
Funny how we assume that a guy who dons a giraffe costume can S T R E T C H his human neck all up in there. :|
And giraffes do it with only seven vertebrae, same as every mammal.
And then looks down! Only to be overcome with good wishes, followed by positive intent for those "below".
Probably more typical of how jobless Scottish men spend their day. (from 0:35)
Hamas sees the Obama win as a windfall... and acts out.But nobody dares say it... at least I haven't seen it.An inconvenient truth?Like Romney's post-election analysis... the truth that dare not speak its name.
Eustace Chilke said "And giraffes do it with only seven vertebrae, same as every mammal."I learned that a few years ago when an alpaca on our ranch broke his neck. The veterinarian, a nice guy in rough clothes with a soothing voice, said the poor guy had only as many vertebrae as the rest of us mammals, so when one goes in the middle, the animal is pretty much doomed. He was telling me the alpaca, whom we called Dr. Seuss, should be put to death, that there weren't realistic alternatives.There ought to be a lesson here.
No true Scotsman would do such a thing.Noooo. Dressess giraffe in plaid pleated skirt, knee socks and tam with puffy ball on top. Equips giraffe with bagpipes. Offers giraffe single malt whisky. Observes true Scotsgiraffeman.
You just might be right, Lem.Course you're thinking like an observer of RATIONAL extremists, given that best guess.Can only imagine Israel rolling her eyes and thinking..."My fucking feet hurt, and I ALREADY overpay my Public Relations people!
Really???....ya gotta dress up as a giraffe?I'm thinking sex offender!
Lem, there may be something to that. Cf. the reaction in the Middle East (e.g. Iran) when Reagan was elected. This time, Carter/Obama got a second term.
Awww, come on, madAsHell!Didn't your momma track your childhood growth, inch by inch, along the neck of the "Good Giraffe"?Stay loose, man.Never too late for an impressive ... SPURT.:P
Thank you, Chip S.
Big Bird is otherwise occupied.Ooooh....Occupy Big Bird!
Lem:This one is for you, because I remember when.Not meant to be nasty, at all, at all: Just noting. And it's not personal or just you, either. It's what it is. And what's hard to just, you know, accept as what is and what's what.That said, Lem, thanks for the memories and for the reminders.
