Hungry Hungry Hippo

Hasbro better jump all over this before we do.
In case you can't read the article, it goes like this:
BANGKOK: A hippopotamus swallowed a circus dwarf in a "freak accident" in northern Thailand, according to a columnist in the Pattaya Mail.

The Grapevine column reported: "A circus dwarf, nicknamed Od, died recently when he bounced sideways from a trampoline and was swallowed by a yawning hippopotamus waiting to appear in the next act."



"Vets said HIlda the Hippo had a gag reflex which caused her to swallow. More than 1000 spectators continued to applaud wildly until they realized there had been a tragic mistake."

Yawning? Gag reflex? Something smells fishy, or should I say Od, about this.

That's how my grandfather went. God rest his unlucky soul.
