World Series Win Spurs Hurt Feelings

I’m considered a giant and nobody asked me to participate in a fun series of games in which I might win something super cool.

Congrats Giants – how you did it without The Baby, is anyone’s guess. Right,  Jorden C.?

    Bebeh giraffe has big bee-u-tiful liquid brown eyes that can break a heart.

    Just wanna give him/her a hug and reassure that everything will be all right.

  2. Cute Heaven says:

    OMG she’s adorable

  3. Those are the most plink-a-licious big eyes I’ve ever seen! Like bottomless cups of espresso.

  4. …..bottomless cups of espresso – LOL

  5. “who is that”?

  6. Oh, so THIS is what it sounds like when doves cry. 😦

  7. This is my Maybelline mascara pose.

  8. HE even has the right colors on his coat… and listen you can hear the PLINKING even through the monitor!

  9. holligans says:

    I bet his “plinks” are like sonic booms. Plates fall off the shelves and everything.

  10. Nevermind, Baby. The Giants are a bunch of whiny complainers anyway.

    (Signed, NOT a disgruntled Rockies fan… 😛 )

    Does BEF apply here?

  11. I think Baby will have better luck in basketball season.

  12. Lewis n' Clark says:

    awwww, Prongs, thenk you. Poor weren’t in the game because you are too blindingly beeyoootiful. The Giant won World Series and are head and shoulders above the rest. Just like you. (Actually, do you HAVE shoulders?)

  13. bob drummond says:

    yes,giraffs do have beautiful eye lashes,but they can also see the outfield action better than any human being can.

  14. Lewis n' Clark says:

    them’s is fightin’ words, Aunti e Bel 🙂 FYI – Just what did we complain about?

  15. i want one so cute

  16. Nice one, prongs.

  17. Those little fur bumps are delicious.

  18. Though…cuddling would be difficult, unless you fancy a good old-fashioned neck squeeze.

  19. O NO He/She/It DI-unt!!! says:

    “…plink-a-licious big eyes …” = 🙂

  20. O NO He/She/It DI-unt!!! says:


  21. cubbybutt says:

    that’s one magical looking creature. good job, god!

  22. I’m not a sport fan but if Baby plays I could learn 🙂

  23. Lewis n' Clark says:

    Bebeh giraffe – I would like to respectfully ask you to the ticker tape parade tomorrow in downtown SF so that you may receive your richly-deserved recognition (and maybe hitch a ride?). We will then all sing together:
    “In your bumpy bonnet
    With all the fur upon it
    You’ll be the proshest bebeh in the ticker tape pah-rade”

  24. O NO He/She/It DI-unt!!! says:

    🙂 🙂 🙂

  25. Go cry Emo Giraffe! After you get scritches and pats of course!

  26. mooncatty, you r so right on – those are heart-breakingly beautiful pools of beauty! Lush depths to get lost in. Almost at odds with the cutie-cute eansy face. This pic is a true cutewinner!

  27. Beautiful behbeh!
    Um, exactly where and how do you snorgle a giraffe!?! That’s a lot of neck! 😀

  28. 260Oakley says:

    Would have been a natural in the 7th-inning stretch.

  29. Holy rim-lit giraffe calf, Batman!!
    My favorite animal. In the cutest form possible.
    *Tears of happy*

  30. Luciousness – I haz it.

  31. You pat him on the shoulder till he reaches down with his prosh head, and smooch him on his muzzle and rub his little horn nodules!

  32. Oh my goodness, those eyes! *melt*!!

  33. those lashes.

  34. warrior rabbit says:

    Hee! But this is no tiny giraffee.

  35. Prince must be a Minn Twins fan, no? :mrgreen:

  36. Now those are plink-worthy, watery eyes!

  37. Wouldn’t you love to see him in an open car with Lincecum and Renteria?

  38. Buh.. but… buh… *shudders*… I wanna be in- in – included, too..
    *tears up some more*

    *Stephanie runs and smothers baby giraffe with kisses and snuggles and fancy giraffe pellets so giraffe won’t head butt her while she smothers and tries to prevent world-series related tears*

  39. lols

  40. Mother Nature insured that babies would be loved by giving them big eyes, but this one doesn’t need any help!

  41. muttluver says:

    I do believe that this is the first picture of a giraffe to make me instinctively go “Aww!” Whenever I look at the picture.

  42. [Maybe I’m just too demanding… maybe I’m just like my father: too bold]

  43. O NO He/She/It DI-unt!!! says:

    Excellent application of Compassion Techniques, ma’am!!!

  44. O NO He/She/It DI-unt!!! says:

    seems entirely accurate to moi!

    Sign me up!!

  45. Theeeeeeeeeo! You see, peeps, one allusion to His Purple Badness, and Theo appears! :mrgreen:

  46. PS:

  47. Thus the expression “necking.” :mrgreen:

  48. Mr G Raffe always reminds me of those old maps which include…to us.. odd shaped continents, Australia usually missing the exotic creatures that have been seen and of course “There be Dragons”

    Theo, old chap how spiffing of you to drop in.

  49. Martha in Washington says:

    Or maybe you are just like your mother…she’s never satisfied.

  50. The Cute Avenger says:

    Not having a beauty like this on our team? Now that I know about the gorgeous giraffelet, I’m complainin’!

    Bet this little feller could give Buster Posey a run for his money in the “young and handsome Giant” department with those eyes!

  51. The Cute Avenger says:

    “plink-a-licious” is now one of my favorite words.

  52. Why do we scream at each other?

  53. Prince always reminded me of a camel…

  54. Nothing of it, dear boy. I was in the neighborhood, you know, by way of extreme southern Arizona. Practically Mexico, I suppose. Still, here I am.

  55. Very good 🙂

  56. What a darlin’. Those limpid eyes, that haircut! I would never hurt his feelings in a million years.

  57. Well don’t get too hot down there…. are you near the lovely red Mesa?

    and do take a trip over to the Desert Museum if you should have a free moment or opertunity

  58. O NO He/She/It DI-unt!!! says:

    “Emo Giraffe” = *snerk*

  59. O NO He/She/It DI-unt!!! says:


  60. We’re all assuming that this is a standard sized raffe, when in fact it is not.
    He’s the one that belongs to ol’ Vladmir here:

    He’s just upset that Vlad is away on business (I heard he was off buying a diamond encrusted vodka decanter and platinum and gold caviar dispenser kit). Don’t worry hon! He’ll be back soon.

  61. This is what it sounds like when Yankees, Phillies and Rangers fans cry. :mrgreen:

  62. Let me echo that. ?????

  63. mitzithecat says:

    That baby…so soft and so cute! That soft fur (do giraffes have fur or hair?), those bee-u-tiful eyes. Baby looks like a plush stuffed animal. Do I need a stepladder to give a big hug and snuggle that plushness?

  64. With those eyes, it’s more like Eurythmics:

    I want to dive into your ocean
    Is it raining with you

    Here comes the rain again
    Falling on my head like a memory
    Falling on my head like a new emotion

  65. So true! I bet this adorable bebeh could have caught a couple of those home runs that went juuuuust over the wall.

  66. A wild Theo appears! Theo uses Marmie! It’s super effective!

  67. Same here… though I could never quite explain why. Something about the eyes and the lips… o.O

  68. WHY MUST YOU TAUNT ME WITH YOUR TEENEH TINEH GIRAFFE!?!?! I wants one so bad! Science, where is my teeneh tineh giraffe!???

  69. Andi in NC says:


  70. TrixandSam says:

    why yes they do. they’re just
    farther down than a people’s shoulders.

  71. O NO He/She/It DI-unt!!! says:

    Eurythmics = GOOD STUFF!! (mostly) Annie Lennox!!!

  72. So good to hear from you, Theo. How ya doin? Just want to convey my gratitude for your service. May you thrive and keep safe.

  73. Prrrt. 😛

  74. The Dutchess of Cupcake says:

    That eye looks pretty unreal…(dare I suggest it might be ‘shopped?).

  75. dinosaurs says:

    this is truly one of the most beautiful photograph I’ve seen of a giraffe. Who’s the photographer? This giraffe is so precious, but the soft focus+lighting ❤

    Someone should be getting photo cred!

  76. The Cute Avenger says:

    And he spits….?

  77. I guess it’s just a feeeeeeeeling…

  78. *SCOWL.*

  79. i left that one just for you. 😀

  80. You could wipe a stamp on those eyes.

  81. Seriously, I don’t know what it is about this beautiful boy with his hurt feelings, but I’ve come back to gaze upon it again and again. What a doll.

  82. Lewis n' Clark says:

    Right on, Theresa!

  83. Lewis n' Clark says:

    one of them wants to use you…one of them wants to be used by you…

  84. cheesygiraffe says:

    Poor baby left out of the giant games. He feels like Rudolph. 😦
