    I know they don't forget, but can they think for themselves without giraffes telling them what to do?

    They probably experience life as an elephant stream of consciousness.

    I think I speak for everyone when I say...

    Something something your prejudice about floppy eared long nosed creatures says something about you.

    I find this incredibly insulting to giraffes. Giraffes are NOT as bossy as they are often made out to be.

    I will not dignify that clearly zebracist comment with a response.

    It's not zebracism if it's true. And there's no wonder the lions keep coming after you when you're black and white, right? I mean what kind of 'camouflage' is that in a savannah??

    But can you lead them with a carrot tied to a stick, much like a donkey?

    Now that's some real zebracism right there.
    Now hold your horses...

    Yeah, I don't have anymore animal puns.

    For some reason the monkey on my shoulder keeps laughing maniacally and mumbling, "it's all going exactly as we planned".

    Oh yeah? If that's true, why do giraffes always look down on the rest of us?

    They can't help being tall. And besides, they don't look down at you. They lower their heads to look at you. That's humility.

    They lower their heads because they're trying to butt you. Giraffes are mean, vicious animals and horrible domestic pets. Just try standing between them and an acacia tree, why don't you?

    Continuity error. Giraffes don't speak Elephant, so they could swear at each other without the other knowing.

    Now that's just the sort of negative remark I'd expect a camel to make.

    There's no point in having an elephant over it.
