A Life Less Interesting
If you had long legs and a neck like that you would look silly running!
You can try it yourself … Hold your hand over the table using your fingers as the legs, stick your thumb out like a giraffe's neck and realise how difficult it is to run gracefully when you're that shape.Intelligent design, my arse!
However ungainly they may seem, giraffes have 21-inch tongues, can run up to 35 mph for short distances and lollop at 10 mph for much longer distances. Their height is only a disadvantage when drinking at a pond- their spread out legs make them vulnerable to attack then.So who's ungainly? Humans can't really run very fact. they have no talons for bringing down prey, they can't fly nor climb very well. It may be why we got a more complex brain - to invent the adaptations the other species were born with - and we haven't done so well with that because we kill each other, overbreed and pollute our homes.
Giraffes are amazing animals. Such an unusual body "design" with their long necks. Do they make sounds? These could be "the 3 tenors". Their movement while running could be described as "ba-loinking".
"Lolloping" works too.
You know my views on the human race, Speedway. We should be wiped out completely and if there's a button to press which would achieve that I'll be happy to press it right now.It still doesn't change the fact that giraffes look silly when they run.Ms.M you have provided my Word For The Day. I shall endeavour to insert ba-loinking into a telephone conversation.
Da-dirp, da-drip-, da-dirping we shall go.
Ah, it takes a poet to describe the motion of giraffes.
