Hunting Stilts?

Average accessories for your laptop computer. But I suppose Proporta has been expanding its target demographic lately with this device.

You know the giraffes (giraffi?) will fight back by just getting themselves some stilts. And then we'll all have sore necks.

Oh my god, the next arms race has begun.

It is also to be noted that the stilts are wireless.

that's outstanding. For the first link I was all like, "Feh! Why am I looking at this?!" I had a smug smirk on my face and everything. My fingers started doing their "flame" exercises. Then I clicked the second link. That's just awesome.

My FPP are only getting better, next I suspect I will find a monkey tap dancing to "Tea for Two" with of course a hat, and cane. To placate the people against single link FPPs, there will be some relation between the dancing monkey with some genetically modified kittens able to fire laser beams from their eyes. It will also have opinion articles against Bush as he is against laser kittens and dancing monkeys, and against people against Bush.

This is a good way to get a leg up on the competition.

Somebody had to say it.

Funny post, but the delivery was a bit stilted.

This product is not going to sell well. I mean, how does a big cat come up with a million bucks? And if it had that much money, why wouldn't it just buy a herd of cows?

I don't get it. Really, I don't. I'm not kidding either.

A herd of cows get eaten or wiped out by disease eventually, but busting giraffes, intimidating younger lions trying to usurp your status, and making all the lady cats say daaaaamn -- that's worth maxing out your Diner's Club card for.

Looks like they didn't get the copy editor in on their little prank.

May also come in useful when crossing rivers with piranhas.
