Jimerick: Racing Certainty

Jim ordered a racehorse online
A thoroughbred sold in it's prime.
Now just for a laugh
They sent a giraffe
But it wins by a neck every time.

The Okapi

I went to the Zoo and saw an Okapi,
Unlike the Hare, he did no hippity-hoppy.
But, like his cousin the Giraffe,
It truly had to make me laugh,
Its long tongue kept its ears from getting sloppy.

Drinking and Playing

Drinking and Playing


Drinking and drinking Irish whiskey and red wine
They all thought they saw a spotted giraffe recline
Statistics say play
Oh ya, come what may
then they started playing with a fat porcupine.

A Giraffe That Once Swallowed A Ladder

A giraffe that once swallowed a ladder
Said 'I'm feeling decidedly sadder.
For the top of the rung 
Is caught on my tongue
And the bottom one's touching my bladder'.

Too Tall to Cross His Legs

Ralph the Giraffe to the chimpanzee
“Where in the ZOO do guys go to pee”
“All creatures kept in here
Are mindful of career
Just go in action packed mystery”

Poorly giraffe

Lofty was a very large giraffe 
he got ill from standing in a draught,
got a very sore throat 
and sounded like a goat
funny to see a giraffe look daft.

Monkey Business

Monkey Business

The monkey’s brother said: “Mom’s gonna have a fit”
The giraffe replied “I’ve got the ring he must commit.”
They looked at her and said “WOW”
They looked at him and said “HOW”
He answered: “My brother put me up to it.”

Giraffes at Animal Kingdom Lodge

Giraffes at Animal Kingdom Lodge

A great, long neck had a tall giraffe;
And when I did see made me laugh;
Bent to drink,
Each neck link,
Always causing me to crack in half.

Jim Horn

Just got back home after 7 nights at
Animal Kingdom Lodge at Disneyworld.

Reindeer Games

A Great, Red-Nosed Elf howled a Laugh,
That split the Zoo's Christmas in half!
 the Reindeer got tangled
 (he too steeply angled)
...they got strung up on a Giraffe!

The Worst Math Teacher in History

My dream was delectable, best one yet
My name was called loudly; I did not fret
Until the class laughed
It was MrGiraffe
Worst math teacher in history I bet.

What's Not

There was a giraffe named Wot
Who got his neck tied into a knot
The animals laughed
At this silly giraffe
How shorter Wot's neck had got

Vatican Express

An excited priest on the train
Was found rubbing against the grain
"You need a giraffe
To service that staff"
Some Sisters laughed in refrain

Baby Dropped Six Feet On Ground

Your baby dropped six foot to the ground?
Head first with no midwife around?
She nodded her head.
More than enough said.
Her new baby giraffe was easily found

Giraffe Who Likes To Laugh

If a quaff were to be drunk by a giraffe would his long neck like to laugh?

Remember when there was a giraffe,
Who always did like to drink a quaff;
Legs were long;
Sand a song,
And when he finished liked to laugh.
