Before I clicked over to the article I was imagining the abrasive properties of zebra stripes. LOL

The story swept the internets and seized the imaginations of satirists for its compelling imagery. In Thailand, a hippopotamus was reported to have swallowed a circus dwarf that had accidentally bounced sideways from a trampoline into the hippo's yawning mouth. The dwarf's nickname was Od. Vets on the scene said Hilda the Hippo had a gag relax that automatically caused her to swallow. Hippos are vegetarians. 1000+ spectators continued to applaud wildly thinking it was part of the show.

The trampoline was sent for forensic analysis.

See, the dwarf's name and that last irresistible touch should be your clues this story is urban legend. If that saddens you, then you're one sick puppy. To make you feel better, here, have yourself a dentist kitty.

Everyone knows the zebra is the dental hygienist of the animal kingdom.

Maybe the zebra got too close and then it was "clean my teeth or I'll kill ya."

A dentist can come in handy!

That's just way too precious! Look at how the dainty zebra leans way in there so as not to get its hooves wet, all the while licking out the scum inside the hippos mouth.

For the zebra's sake, let's hope there is no reciprocity.

An ambiguously stripped Zebra willing to serve the Monster of the jungle in hopes of a favor or two is the perfect image of a RINO. We should call Lindsey Graham "Zebra" from now on.

Is there a way democrats can work this into the health care bill?

I love that story, and I love animals.

I am a vegan, thank you.

Penny said...

Titus? Come over here, honey. You have this little sliver of spinach stuck between your front teeth, and it just won't do.

*dabs*

There ya go! Looking like a million bucks now.

Isn't there even a remote possibility that the picture is a photo-shop?
