''How the stump got its name''

One sunny afternoon a giraffe was wandering through Africa looking for something to eat.
That day that same giraffe was eating grass in between two trees. The giraffe got his head stuck. He was stomping hard trying to get out but nothing would work. He was completely stumped. He was out of ideas, but he thought of one last thing. The giraffe pulled his head out and the trees fell. Now the giraffe is no longer stumped. That is how the stump of a tree got it's name!!!
