Just on the shady side of brilliant. With some dedication, this could be the premise for a screenplay.

Yes, I could picture this with each vignette. Mud throwing, eating the baby giraffe, this was all great descriptions, dialogue, and smooth. Great ending, very nice!
This was an excellent satire.

Do you have a congressman, senator, president, premier or prime minister you could send this too? They might learn something. Great work!
Great story! :-) I noticed where you threw your brick that you're from Oklahoma. Is this in any way representative of Oklahoma politics? :-) (I'm from Oklahoma, too, I can ask that.) :-)

This is absolutely my favorite this week. Had to clean off my monitor after the bit with the baby giraffe.

Oh, I really enjoyed this. And I bet you did to. Fast paced. Fun dialogue and the occasional description that lifted the story and defined character: 'The lion placed his paw on his face, “I’m in so much trouble.”' A funny story that packed a punch.

Thanks for all the great comments. Yes, I had thought of turning this into a screenplay. No, I did not have any one politician in mind. (being satirical do you really think any of them would get it). And Yes, I am in Oklahoma, where I thankfully allow politicians to have very little influence over my life, a necessary evil. ;)
