So, April the giraffe decided to have her calf.

Male, looks healthy. I’m still trying to decide whether or not the Animal Adventure Park simply got wrong how long the pregnancy was likely to go, or whether this was all a subtle plot to get some publicity.  If it was the latter… well, it worked, didn’t it? Hard to argue with success, you know.

Tweet of the Day, God Help Me: I’m Putting Up A TMZ Giraffe Tweet edition.

This was sent to me (I am omitting that person’s name because I am not cruel), and I am slightly horrified to say that I found it enjoyable. There’s not much that can be fairly said to be improved by getting the TMZ treatment, but this story… yeah. It’s a perfect example of our new, shiny media world. It really and truly is.

Geez, how long does a freaking giraffe gestate for, anyway?

That one whose livestream I linked to a while back still hasn’t given birth yet. …I probably should know how long a giraffe’s gestation period is, though.  In my defense, I’ve picked up all my giraffe lore via osmosis, but I should maybe be more formalized about it going forward.
