|G: Giraffes have spots.|

Here are a few other examples of the Alien Giraffe phenomenon:
And the weirdest one of all... the giraffe who was in a horrible spill at a chemical factory, and as the ooze pooled around his mangled feet, was transformed into this monstrosity:

Then there are children's clothes. Sometimes they have very helpful instructions embroidered on them:

And sometimes, they offer really terrible advice:
|What's next? A romper with rattles that says "Shake me," a onesie with soccer balls that says "Kick me," or a footie pajama set with frolicking lambs that says "Marinate me, roast me until tender, then serve me with mint chutney"?|
