When a wild giraffe gets a sore throat (which is very serious, as you can imagine) he goes instinctively to a special 'short tree' area of the savannah where he can munch leaves at an easier level and hang with other sick giraffes while they all recover together.

When Steven Spielberg heard about this he thought 'What a swell movie that would make.' So he went to Africa and spent millions in pre-production trying to make a hit movie with the story of these ailing giraffes.

But it never did quite come together for some reason, and Spielberg was very disappointed. He said to himself, "I wish I could somehow salvage thisproject, 'cause it's got a terrific title'".

The rest, as they say - is history. Sure, he made some kind of a dinosaur flick, but we never did get to see ...... Giraffe-Sick Park.
