La fable de la girafe by AquaSixio La fable de la girafe by AquaSixio

MAJOR EDIT 11th march 2011 : After seven year, new coloring of this artwork. Old version is available here [link]


The fable of the moon and the giraffe:

Does anyone wonder why the moon has a crescent form?
The giraffe can't sleep because the moonlight keeps her awake!
Every month, she starts eating the moon.
She can't make short work of it, otherwise she might choke...
So, she nibbles pieces, drinking from the clouds sometimes.
After 14 days, the sky is entirely black.
So, the giraffe takes a nap.

Does anyone know why the moon comes back?
Neither the giraffe nor I know why

FRENCH VERSION

La fable de la girafe

Personne ne se demande pourquoi la lune a la forme d'un croissant ?
La girafe est génée par la lumiere de la lune, elle peut pas dormir !
Chaque mois, la girafe comme commence à manger la lune
Elle ne peut pas en faire une une seule bouchée,sinon elle s'ettoufferait...
Alors elle grignotte des petits morceaux, en buvant quelques nuages parfois,
Au bout de 14 jours, le ciel est totalement noir.
Alors la girafe peut dormir.

Personne ne sait pourquoi la lune revient aprés ?
Ni la girafe ni moi le savons.

La fable de la girafe by *AquaSixio is a clever fable explaining the phases of the moon. Be sure to read the artist's comments for the whole story. ( Suggested by poliwag30 and Featured by frail )
