*sigh* if only giraffes understood the importance of thinking.

This reminds me of reading Mary Poppins --only Mary Poppins was more creepy and less adorable.

Dude. Was that the *Swedish* Chef???? If so, awesome.

Hills' Angels said...

Taryn - I totally just had a Mary Poppins flashback after I read your comment. Shudder...we sure read some pretty creepy stuff as kids. :D

Christine - Yes! I know of no other chefs worth trapping and watching than the Swedish one.

Beth - Mua. You're such a cool sissy.

Janet - Thanks! You, of all people, taught me most not to sit and think...at least all the time. :)

Haha! The "Do not tap on glass" sign is my favorite!

Stupid boring writers. They're worse than koalas.

HOW APPROPRIATE. I <3 this post!

I want to steal it and snuggle it. And then staple it to my wall.

But not like, all mean, and stuff. Just because I want to look at it all. the. time.

Srsly. If you sold prints I'd be all over this one.

Peggy - Can you imagine trying to write while some kid bangs on your window all day? Man. I don't know how those monkeys and their typewriters do it.

Adam - Oh man! You should have been at the San Diego Zoo for Koalapalooza!! They were almost awake!

L.T. - Dude. You were TOTALLY an inspiration for this. All weekend I was thinking fondly of zoos and how smart they were in their hiring processes.

Haha, I love the Swedish chef!

"You should have been at the San Diego Zoo for Koalapalooza!! They were almost awake!"

And I missed it? Crap!

Kristan said...

LOL hilarious and adorable (and oh so true...).

Susan Kaye Quinn said...

LOL! (borka!) I love it...

Myrna Foster said...

Poor writer - it's hard to plot mass destruction when you're being watched.

Mooney said...

Hahaha. Ah borka, borka, borka.

Re: to LT Host's (Hostess? Mmmm...) comment.

I want this as inspiration, a poster-sized poster to post on my bathroom wall, so I could stare at it when I'm sitting in contemplation.

Perhaps not really inspired by the zoo but the young giraffe I imagine is Savin, staring at you all day. "Why Mama not moobing? Ma ma? Mmmm"

LOL. Love this post. Interesting take on how animals might see us humans. And writers specifically. LOL. Hell, I'd rather see the gymnasts, too. LOL.
