PIC OF THE WEEK: ABANDONED GIRAFFE
What a sad sight! Someone callously abandoned their pet giraffe. Considering children love giraffes, it must have been some cruel joke that the giraffe-nappers decided to abandon the world's tallest animal onto a steel fence next to a Carroll Gardens playground.
There, as children played, Geoffrey (or what ever his name is)quietly sat. No playmates, no attention. None of the frolicking kids invited Geoffrey to play their reindeer games. If only one kid just looked up. They'd see the lonely giraffe.
Unfortunately, this giraffe is just a dwarf of most giraffes, which can grow to a height of 18 feet. Had God made Geoffrey a little taller, surely one of those children would have noticed the dejected mammal. Poor Geoffrey.
