If This Doesn't End Up On At Least One Refrigerator, I'll Be Very Disappointed In Humanity.

I heard a joke I really liked, so I illustrated it.  It goes like this:

A giraffe walks into a bar and says,

This is original artwork.  I know you're very tempted to steal it and try to sell this fine-quality piece of artworkit on Ebay for gobs of money, but do try to restrain yourself. 
 Get it???

Okay, on second look, I think maybe this illustration needs a bit of explanation.  The orange stuff is liquor.  The things in the bartender's hand is glassware.  The giraffe has hooves or toes or something, not high heels.  The giraffe is the spotted thing.  That's not a tumor on it's face, that's its lower jaw.  Because, you know, the giraffe is talking.  So his mouth is open. 

You're welcome.  I'm here all week.

(True:  This is probably the best thing I've ever drawn.)


  1. Since I do not draw by any stretch of the imagination this looks pretty good to me! :D

  2. Dana... No, I can't post it on my refrigerator; my grandmother has problems with some of the Disney movies that are rated PG... That being said, I did email it to my mother, brother and assorted others, as well as passing on the link to your blog. Who knows, maybe one or two will peruse.

    1. Thanks! And no worries... Despite rumors to the contrary, it's really not my intention to cause apoplexy in the kitchen. (Though the fire department may disagree.)

  3. I can honestly say that is the best drawing of a giraffe in a bar I've seen all day.

    So, this pirate walks into a bar, and he has a steering wheel in his pants. The bartender says, "You know you have a steering wheel in your pants?"

    The pirate says, "Arrr! It's driving me nuts."

    I'm not about to try illustrating that.

    1. Achievement unlocked.

      Also, I'm probably going to be stealing that joke.

    2. I stole it from someone else (who probably stole it too). That's how it goes with jokes. No one knows who makes them up to begin with.

      Also, sorry about the double comments. I tried posting it with my Kindle and thought it didn't go through. Apparently it did. Twice.

      True: Today I was in a sexual assault prevention class required by my employer. When I got bored, I leaned over and told a joke to my buddy. It involved a giraffe... and a bar... If I get fired, it's ALL YOUR FAULT.
