By(e-bye) Giraffes

Did anyone else see that recently an Israeli rabbi says giraffe meat, milk are kosher?

Apparently the real question was whether the giraffe has enough stomachs (four) and thus chews its cud (it does). Cloven hooves -- check. Previously, it was thought that the issue was where, on the giraffe's extensive neck, to make the fatal blow (the shecht). However, experts have made it clear that "anyone who does not know where to shecht a giraffe either knows nothing about the laws of shechitah or could not hit the side of a barn with a baseball."

And that's all the news that's fit to print.

Well. Who'd have thought?


Now, how does one go about catching a giraffe to milk it, I wonder?!

Is it bad that I find this whole thing riotously funny?
