Oy vey! Giraffe meat and milk declared kosher!

That's right my fellow Jews, you can finally stop avoiding it at restaurants and passing it over in the grocery stores - Giraffe is now fair game!

According to Rabbi Shlomo Mahfoud, "The Giraffe has all the signs of a ritually pure animal, and the milk forms curds, which strengthed that view." What the Rabbi didn't add, is that it's delicious!

Seriously folks, who woke up one morning and said, hey, I wonder if we can eat those big animals with the long necks? Someone get this guy working on the cure for cancer, because he's on a roll.

Really? Giraffes? Were you being sarcastic because I dunno, you might really like the taste of giraffe. I hope people don't get it in their heads to start trying every animal out there. I don't really want to see Meerkat Burgers or Chinchilla Chilli on menus.
