Having a Giraffe

I blame BNO News' @mpoppel for all this. There was I one day in July, quietly minding my own business, when he tweeted this:


Forget the heffalump in the living room, a giraffe in one's back yard is much more appealing!

So I sent my friend Liz a totally perplexing text message reminding her to check her (minuscule) back yard for wayward giraffes when she got home. Needless to say, there were none. Her imaginary piggiflu-infected pet pig which she keeps out there had remained undisturbed, albeit somewhat lonely.

After much banter, I was led to Ola Helland's wonderfully crazy onemilliongiraffes.com. He's aiming to collect one million hand drawn (or hand crafted) giraffes by 2011. Please help him out and get drawing. If I can do it, so can you!

Here's my contribution:

Ola did it! Hooray! Well done, Ola!
