Glendora Vegeterian Club

What do you think of an animal 18 feet tall weighing over 2000 lbs., a ruminant, who eats leaves, fruits and flowers of woody plants, primarily of the acacia family? Well, Love the Universe made such a remarkable animal: the giraffe. Giraffes live in herds and are gregarious. Females take sole responsibility for raising the young. These animals are beautifully marked in blotches of brown, yellow and black on a white background. The long neck of the giraffe is about 7.9 feet in length. Just as interesting is the tongue which is 18 inches long. Giraffes live in groups, colonies of companionship and sociability. What do they want from human beings? Appreciation, cooperation, safety, symbiosis and love. We are thrilled by such a fascinating creation in the God Love kaleidoscope. I would like to have one as a pet!


1. A man was looking for a new type of pet, something companionable and interesting. His friend said, “Why don’t you get a centipede? They are good company.” The man said OK and went to a pet store and bought a centipede and brought it home in a box. At noon he said, “Centipede, let’s go out and eat.” There was no answer. At 1:00 the man said, “Centipede, I know of a nice place on Main St. Let’s go.” There was no answer. At 2:00 the man said, “Centipede, let’s go eat. I’m hungry!” The centipede said, “I heard you the first time. I’m putting on my shoes.”

2. The lawyer said, “It gives me a grand and glorious feeling to dispense legal advice.” His client said, “Give him a grand and he feels glorious.”

3. A woman says, “I have the most delicious recipe for a casserole. I simply mention it and my husband says ‘Let’s eat out!’”
