  1. I still contend that you guys are giving an edge to the giraffe because you misread the combination and somehow thought the giraffe was 100ft tall instead of the head.

    How is an 18ft tall Giraffe going to beat a 100ft stretchy head?

      • Psssh, if we’re talking traditional firehose sizes that’s a 3″ attack hose. Those hoses are made to put out a decent amount of liquid to smother fires without causing damage. There would be too much liquid glue to allow the glue to dry and solidify. Even if it did start to cure, that head weighs thousands of pounds. Any glue that managed to stick it somewhere wouldn’t be able to maintain integrity vs the sheer mass of the head.

        Giant head stretches over and rolls onto the giraffe. Game over man. Game over.

  2. You know what super glue does in the eyes? Its pretty bad. And those giant eyes are a big target, in my mind giraffe got pretty much perfect weapon for the job.
