“I have decided that my New Year’s resolution in 2012 will be simply: To Offend. I want to offend as many people as I can. That is my new ambition. I will call your favorite celebrity out on the carpet and promote their flaws, and anger you. That is what I will look for. I will portray the religious leader with bird droppings, and the sacred texts as toilet paper. I will seek to find photos of everyone, including myself in the most embarrassing moments. If I make you blush, I will be rewarded.” ~ Toodles G. Raffe
I first penned the above paragraph in December of 2010, with plans to post this on my blog around that time. However, I did not. I held back because I was not sure entirely that it would be understood, and so therefore in a rare momemt of restraint, I withheld my publishing of that post.
Now a whole new year has passed, and our planet is in no better shape or condition for it. Giraffes are still locked up in zoos, and mysteriously murdered by caring ‘zoo keepers’. Lions roam free to murder giraffes in Africa, and no one seems to give a rip. Well, I do! I am a giraffe, and this offends me!
Therefore, I have decided that in 2012 I will do more than just offend. I will really offend. My plan is to expand my blog to a new format, and a new
design. I will probably transfer over some of these old blog posts that have become such favorites. However, I will be taking on new projects as well in 2012. I will not just be bringing you interesting things to read about, but I also plan to publish comprehensive works on the Giraffopia Philosophy.
So in 2012, you might see early in the year a shift in the force. A change in my blog, and a tremble in the earth. Don’t worry, it is just me freeing a thousand more giraffes from the local zoo, and upsetting the status quo. Ride the wave if you like it, and spread the word.
