Cary Grant

CARY GRANT

Answer: Film director Alfred Hitchcock made cameo appearances in 39 of his 52 surviving major films. For the films in which he appeared, he would be seen for a brief moment in a non-speaking part as an extra, such as boarding a bus, crossing in front of a building, standing in an apartment across the courtyard, or even appearing in a newspaper photograph. This playful gesture became one of Hitchcock's signatures; and fans would make a sport of trying to spot his cameos. His appearances became so popular that he began to make them earlier in his films so as not to distract the audience from the plot.

Giraffe

GIRAGGE

By the dgrimm, what is a Giragge?? 🤣

Answer: The Giraffe may be well-known for its incredibly long neck and tongue, but those are hardly the longest features of this majestic animal. The giraffe has the longest tail of any land mammal. Their tail can grow to be 8 feet (2.4 meters) long. A black tuft at the end of the tail whisks away flies and other flying insects. The male giraffe has a longer tail than that of the female. The giraffe is also the tallest living animal and is instantly recognizable by its exceptionally long neck. Adult males stand between 15 – 19 feet.
