Boy, Foggy, you iz sooooo smart! As a budding painter I should have detected the technique, but it takes a crafty rooster who would have painted that baby his ownself to see what them thar zoo keepers done to fool us suckers marks rubes.

BC (the comic) is dedicating this week to the opening of the park:
http://johnhartstudios.com/bc/

According to Mason Mastroianni on Facebook: "Be sure to follow BC this week as we honor April the Giraffe and her calf, Tajiri! The park is right over the hill from our studio in Harpursville, NY, and it's opening day"

Can we be sure that her birthday will be in three days? She took much freedom to decide when it was time for her birth! Webpages were filled with conspiracy theories as to when the event would happen. Mom was wandering her cage for days without any news! In these days, how can one be not suspicious about a birthday? :twisted:

Are you sure that was him? Giraffes all look the same. With my gargantuan research I have uncovered evidence that he was switched with a commie Muslim from Kenya...
