Just So Story - How the Giraffe got a blue tongue!
One day in the Savannah Gerry Giraffe got an invitation to a party titled ‘Party in the Jungle’ in the jungle from his friend Harry Hippo.
Harry Hippo was an old friend of Gerry’s from when they worked together in Gary’s Garbage Swamp.
“How am I going to get there in time I don’t have a car or even a bike?” He asked himself. He worried so much that he lost track of time and he only had five minutes before he was not going to not be allowed into the ‘Party in the Jungle’.
Gerry quickly ran next door to his neighbor ‘Old Lady Zee’ to see if he could get a ride but then he remembered that she was always testing her crazy potions on him but he still went in.
“Oh hello deary how can an old witchdoctor help a young buck like you” Old Lady Zee asked Gerry.
“I really need a ride to a party before it’s too late, if you can?” Gerry asked.
“Oh well try this then hop in my car” Old Lady Zee said quickly.
“Oh No! Not more soup well ...O.K” Gerry said.
She made him have the potion and suddenly Gerry’s tongue turned dark blue.
“Arrrrrgggggh” He screamed. What he didn’t know was that it was permanent.
That is how Giraffes got their blue tongues.
