Lil Guy Gets a Name

EARLIER THIS WEEK STAFF AT THE ANIMAL ADVENTURE PARK SOLVED ANOTHER PROBLEM.

APRIL THE GIRAFFE’S WORLD-FAMOUS NEW BABY NEEDED A NAME!

MRS. SORIA’S 4TH GRADE CLASS AT GARFIELD ELEMENTARY EVEN WEIGHED IN, TELLING US:
“WE THINK APRIL THE GIRAFFE'S NAME SHOULD BE BACON BITS. WE THINK THIS BECAUSE BACON IS AWESOME AND EVERYONE LIKES IT – JUST LIKE THE NEW GIRAFFE!”

WELL, WE THINK THAT’S A GREAT NAME, BUT THE FOLKS AT PARK THAT APRIL CALLS HOME HAD OTHER IDEAS. THEY NAMED THEIR NEWEST ADDITION "TAJIRI" (TAH-JEER-EE).
STAFF AT ANIMAL ADVENTURE PARK SAY "TAJIRI" IS SWAHILI FOR "HOPE OR CONFIDENCE."  STAFFERS CALL HIM "TAJ" FOR SHORT.
