Giraffe + Telephone Pole = Illegal

Once upon a time Vermont had a law that deemed  it illegal to tie a giraffe to a telephone pole.

    • On another web site a sketch of a telephone pole with a Giraffe tied to it is displayed it shows a tall poll and tiny Girffae only the height of 4 runs on the pole used to climb the pole. I commented on it as follows – ( Georgia Law for that state, Vermont for this one of your websites )

      You have drawn an incorrect sketch.

      The Giraffe was a problem for the alies in the world war.
      As the Americans added telephone wire , and telephone poles to communicate.
      They found, a big problem existed , that did not exist in their own part of the world.
      They had to go back later and and raise up all the telephone poles , and wires again afterwards
      that they had put in since they wanted to use them. I believe 25 feet or higher above .
      They had to raise their height , if they wanted to utilize their phone without having continual service disruption.


      They the Giraffe if your skecth was drawn correctly would run and run fast in a herd, and could not duck below the
      telephone wire intercepting it on the neck below the head and thus snapping them all to peaces
      ( this is also painfull to the beast since
      they can’t go under them , they went through them ).

      The drawing if drawn correctly would also show the Giraffe as the biggest eater of telephone wire , had they not been raised
      when they put them in they were at perfect eating height for the Giraffe , Giraffe’s eat trees and telephone poles are from trees
      and the have powerful cable cutting choppers.

      I suspect the then city officials in Georgia learned a lot about the Giraffe, that someone brought over one day.
      I hope he wasn’t electrocuted on electrical wires. Imagine if a human being was able to contact them so readily, and others witnessed
      it or an outage from it and tried to prevent it by a law like this which is all they could probably do , since many would call that an unsafe
      condition, and in humane are these the people that should be called dumb and stupid as the title of your column indicates.
