Walking away is not an option... dialogue must prevail.

Hippo to other Hippo "I can't talk right now, I have a Trog in my throat"...

Anndi said...

Buff: *gigglesnort* That's cute!

Lu' said...

I'm guessing that is going to cause one hell of a belch out of that hippo. Couldn't they have Heimliched the little guy out of there?

Bond said...

So Hilda had a gag reflex.... I bet the male hippos are not too happy to hear that...

bwahahahahahahahaa

Jay said...

The last line about the crowd cheering was the real kicker. Woo! Awesome stunt dude! haha

Cooper said...

MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.....how great is that!!!!!

Charles Gramlich said...

If it isn't true, perhaps it should be. I'm a "wee" bit skeptical, though.

Desert Songbird said...

You know, for a tragic story, it loses it's tragedy in it's "bizarre-ness."

Crap. What a way to go...

Leighann said...

Whoops!

CrystalChick said...

Are hippopotamuses... meeses... misses??... usually that tired at the circus? Maybe the yak woman could bark loudly in her direction next time.

amynoroom said...

That story is Whack!

Anndi said...

Lu: Let's hope she's not "little person intolerant"!

Bond: Why? it causes her to swallow...

Jay: Midget runs out saying "I meant to do that"

Cooper: It takes so little to entertain us, doesn't it? ;)

Charles: "wee" bit? Bwahahahahaha! How can you doubt something found on the internets?

Songbird: "Crap. What a way to go..." I hope he can swim once Hilda "goes"...

Leighann: Yup!

Crystal: I think they're going to redesign the whole layout... at least if you put the lion cage next to the trampoline the worst that can happen is... no wait, that ain't good!

Amy: It's surprising... not as surprising as going past a hippo's tonsils.. but surprising!

Travis said...

I got nuttin' that ain't already been said.

Although, perhaps this could be a solution to your monkey problem. Just bounce 'em sideways.

Ron said...

oooops!

Bee said...

Oh. My. Lanta.

I laughed so hard and then flagged myself for my sins!

That was hilarious! Is the hippo still on display because I'd pay a ton of money to see it!

Slick said...

lol....oh man

Now if that isn't a "freak accident", NOTHING is!!

Sanni said...

Oh my... I'm sure no one can make shit blike this up? *g*

Yes. I'm trying to catch up.
Thank you so much for all your kind comments during the pregnancy and on Lily's birth announcement, Anndi!
Trying my very best to return to "normal" now *g*

Sanni

P.S.: Happy belated Canada Day =)

Akelamalu said...

Ye Gods, that was some snack!

Bud Weiser, WTIT said...

An odd end to Od!

Mimi Lenox said...

Like Charles, I am a bit skeptical but I'm laughing my prissy behind off at Oh. My. Lanta above from Bee.

The world is a strange place indeed.
