Mutant Giraffe-Tortoise Photo Caption Challenge

Having read some of the heated commentary on the last two posts about the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebration and the controversial Jacob Zuma Spear painting, Wonkie thought the timing is ripe for some much-needed Friday fun.

While the source of the photo is still unknown, Wonkie believes that the evil giraffe-tortoise genetic mutation (Wonkie cautions you not not be fooled by its cute demeanour) was released as a devious attempt by Barack Obama to deflect attention off Mitt Romney in the run-up to the US election. Wonkie Intelligence informants suggest that the creature was developed in a secret North Indian compound with the latest in genetic lab technology, several international scientists and a customised version of the CIA gene-splicing software, Photoshop.

In other news, TAG, the world-famous Tortoise Activist Group in Norway launched an international smear campaign against giraffes. They claimed that the mutant creature should have been called a tortoise-giraffe instead, and also that the giraffe was infringing on basic tortoise rights. The giraffes in turn appealed to Greece for help but were disappointed when they found that the Greeks had already begun using the giraffe-tortoise as a makeshift currency as they were running out of olives.

Mangwashi Phiyega photoIn South Africa, President Jacob Zuma, eager to recover from the traumatic challenge on his dignity and the very real threat of his ousting later this year, took a bold move and appointed Mangwashi Phiyega as the first female police commissioner in South Africa. The replacement for disgraced police chief Bheki Cele had most of South Africa dumbfounded and frantically googling trying to find out who she is.

Wonkie tried to reach Mangwashi Phiyega for her comments on the giraffe-tortoise travesty of nature but her personal assistant told our South African correspondent that she was very busy reading up the Wikipedia Guide to Crime Prevention.

Concerned that nobody was considering the poor mutant giraffe-tortoise’s view on current matters, Wonkie posted today’s Photo Caption Challenge – please leave your thoughts on what the giraffe-tortoise is thinking in the comments section below.

NB: Readers are welcome to submit more than one caption. If you do have more than one thought to share, Wonkie requests that you please put ALL your entries into a SINGLE COMMENT – Thank you.

Wonkie wonders if this giraffe-tortoise creature has some kind of superpower – like being able to pick out the winning numbers of the next big lotto.

For the clever-smarties amongst you that believe that this is a giraffe-turtle and not a giraffe-tortoise, sorry but you’re wrong!
