An excellent tip arrived in the inbox yesterday featuring this sentence: “San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers scored points with giraffes at the San Diego Zoo earlier today as the quarterback fed the animals their favorite food: tasty biscuits.” You can see Mr. Rivers and the tasty biscuits above. The giraffes pictured are Nicky (a 15-year-old female, the lower giraffe) and Silver, a 20-year-old male (the upper giraffe). There are five other Masai giraffes in San Diego besides these two, including a month-old baby.
What exactly makes these tasty biscuits so tasty? A zoo spokesperson says they’re made of soy beans, sugar beet pulp and alfalfa meal with nutrients added.
Here’s what sugar beet pulp looks like, apparently.
MMMMMMMM! Sugar beet pulp: it’s what’s for dinner, when Philip Rivers is cooking!
One final BONUS PICTURE: quarterbacks holding a bird! That’s Charlie Whitehurst, left, and Mike Hermann with Matilda, a kookaburra. (And Meredith, a Charger cheerleader.)
