Fortunate Correspondence

Some people just get all the email. Sigh!

From my inbox...

Dear [insert friend's name here],

It is with much sadness that I am forwarding this appeal to you. Recently, alarming scientific studies have discovered that a shocking 90% of giraffa camelopardalis have been found to be unable to read at even a basic grade 1 English (British) level.

As seen in the attached press release photo, many giraffe have been given sub-standard reading materials, such as Egyptian hieroglyphics, Olmec script, and Rongorongo. We cannot allow this travesty to continue. Every living creature has a basic human right to good quality, properly spelled reading material.

One moment of your time could end the literary extinction of these beloved even-toed ungulate mammals. Your consideration can bring quality literature to them, including (but not limited to) Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin, de Sade's 120 Days of Sodom, and Rowling's Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.


So...who wants to take odds on how itchy her throat is?

And how many dead Giraffes are on her head now?

O the humanity!
