    Nice work, Aesop.

    When do we find out who is the giraffe, and who is the elephant?Report

      I think that we are all sometimes elephants and sometimes giraffes. It doesn’t necessarily follow that we behave like this particular elephant or giraffe.Report

    I hate to contradict your narrative, but giraffe houses are actually very sturdy brick structures, though the doors really are too narrow for an elephant.

    Giraffe Manor

    I’m not sure they built that house, though. The spiral staircase just doesn’t seem like something a giraffe would build.Report
