I bet they taste like licorice and whipped cream

Things I have never said to a zebra:

1. Those stripes are very slimming.

2. Would you like a mint?

3. If our culture was a little more exotic, you could easily be part of a balanced breakfast.

4. So, wait, would that be white meat or dark meat?

5. Can I color you with these crayons?

6. Guess what the letters ZEBRA could stand for! *

* Zippers Eventually Break, Ripping Angrily
* Zephyrs, Eccentric But Rarely Airborne
* Zooming Eagerly Beyond Roasted Armadillos
* Zachary Eats Big Rotten Apples
* Zealous Electricians Brought Real Amperes
* Zero Emergencies Barely Required Aspirin
* Zaire Embarrassed Bolivia Rather Awkwardly

Okay, that's what you haven't said to a zebra, what are some of the things you DID say to a zebra?

That looks a little like my truck.

Grace: I'll keep that in mind as an idea for a future post! If no one comments on it, I can say it was all your fault. :)

Marilyn: It's a good thing zebras can't drive, or they'd want seat covers made out of people-skins. Which might be ok if it was fake people, but would still be a little creepy.

Grace stole my comment, pretty much word for word.

And, one more comment:

"Hey, didn't I see your brother in the Jungle Room at Graceland?"

Mr.Knucklehead: It's ok. I'll award you joint custody.

MikeWJ: LOL! Also known as, "How to feel really awkward in a room full of animals that were already thinking of trampling you to death..."
