GIRAFFES? GIRAFFES! is yet another fabulous mid-20th-century science encyclopedia spoof in the How? Book Series from the quirky people who are responsible for the McSweeney's Quarterly Concern. A companion to YOUR DISGUSTING HEAD, this wry and hilarious tome is filled with preposterous facts and nostalgic illustrations. From the truth about why giraffes have different neck lengths (their "necks are actually made out of paper-mache"), to an in-depth discussion of why "giraffes control most of the world's supply of ice," there is much to enjoy here. With a variety of full-color photographs and illustrations.
A collection of humorous trivia about giraffes makes no promises that everything the book reveals is true and discusses the giraffe's fondness for iced oatmeal cookies and the role of a giraffe's spots as intergalactic receptors.
