Today, my family and I went to feed carrots to the giraffes at the zoo. After I finished my first cup of carrots, I turned back to get some more. Suddenly, I was jerked back and a chunk of my hair was ripped out. The giraffe mistook the orange barrette in my hair for a carrot. FML

Haha!! Sorry but that is funny. I bet the giraffe was just as disappointed as you.

This is how we get those crazy hazard signs. This one will read: No orange barrettes next to the giraffes. No one will know why either.

That must have hurt.

No, it was really pleasurable to have her hair forcibly uprooted from her scalp.

Hey, some people might be into that.

Hey don't listen to those people #1 you were just pointing that out dome people are dicks

How about the warning label on curling irons that read, "Caution: External use only." Which one of you sick bastards made that necessary?!

this comment made me die laughing

oh wow, that sucks. i hope that giraffe digests it ok...

I love that your concern is for the giraffe and not the OP. Can giraffes cough up hairballs...with barrettes?

Hope your hair regrows quickly and the giraffe is ok, that sounds painful.

Sounds like the giraffe was captive-ated by your beret, sounds like things *takes of sunglasses* got a little wild.

YYYYEEEEAAAHHH!!!!!!

that comment was hot!!!

Once a giraffe develops a taste for human hair, they can never be trusted around hairy zoo visitors again!!

people like me who shave my head have nothing to worry

Yeah, you just have to worry about being scalped instead!

Pretty sure giraffe's are color blind, so the fact that your barrette was orange probably had nothing to do with it. I'm also surprised your hair was ripped out, because giraffe's use their tongues to bring the food to their mouth. Your hair was probably tugged, but I really think you're exaggerating. Besides, you're the one that turned your back on a wild animal.

Still seems like an exaggeration to me.

we don't know what kind of clip it was. nor the texture of the OPs hair. my wife has some that even when she takes them out, they still rip some hair out. I can't imagine if a giraffe yanked it out with their tounge.

*giraffes Why the unnecessary apostrophes?

How do you know she's exaggerating or what kind of barrette she was using? Yea giraffes use their tongue, but it could've grabbed a chunk of OPs hair. Just stop trying to look like you know everything, obviously you don't.

Guessing a giraffe tongue is pretty strong seeing as they can strip leaves off branches? Most animals can see some colours, some more so than humans and some less.

I really wish I could thumbs up the staffs' comments, especially on this thread.

Sorry #34 that was my bad. Typed too fast.

Hey, where's the Creme filling?

What kind of carrots do you eat? Last time I checked they don't have creme filling.
