Recursive giraffe

In searching for some other cartoons yesterday, I came across this entertaining New Yorker cartoon by Farley Katz:

Yes, a recursive giraffe: each of its “horns” (technically, ossicones) is a giraffe, and each of their horns is a giraffe, and so on.

For some discussion of recursion, see my 9/3/13 posting on “Recursive sushi”.

Katz’s work has appeared on this blog once before this, in a 10/18/10 posting “The cowbell industry”.

Katz’s Wikipedia page is just a stub; it tells us that he’s an American humorist born in 1984, a staff cartoonist for The New Yorker, and the author of the book Journal of a Schoolyard Bully.
