Maybe I ought to chop down some of the bamboo in my back yard and sell it to the zoo. They could trade me an impala or giraffe for it, or some other animal that looks like it would have good meat. Giraffe stink though. They'd better bathe the animal first. I've got a huge freezer, and I could through out some of the junk food, but I'd probably have to split the giraffe meat up.
