I must say, this is a strange development. However, I am not one to argue with a good thing. Naming a baby giraffe 'Baby Yao Ming' sounds like the exact same thing that I would do if I ever gained a giraffe naming opportunity, so you know I'm not hating.
It kind of makes me wonder if I've been naming things correctly, considering I have yet to name ANYTHING Baby Yao Ming. What happens when this giraffe gets a little older, though? Toddler Yao Ming? "Getting there" Yao Ming? Adult Yao Ming? Old 'raffe Ming?
None of this can be known at this time, but best believe I will have the situation closely monitored.
