Drug Hippo On The Loose

Trying To Start A New Life Away From The Drug Gamebabyhippobabyhippo

Back in the 80’s Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar had alot of money floating around. In fact he had so much money he decided that he needed his own zoo. Among a multitude of other animals, he acquired two hippos named Pepe and Matilda. One day the hippos just couldn’t take it anymore and made a run for the river where they settled down and had a baby.  The Colombians thought this was a safety concern so they shot poor Pepe through the heart. Naturally this pissed people off so a local beer company offered to bring in people to relocate the widow hippo and her fatherless baby. Why didn’t the Colombian government think of this? Why is it when someone mentioned a family of wild hippos living peacefully in a river the first thing that popped into their minds was “shoot them”? The Colombian government is an asshole.

  1. I thought that hippos killed more humans than any other animal?

    ::checks Google::

    In my 10-second search, apparently it’s true that they kill more than any other animal IN AFRICA. Still. When you consider the number of human-killing animals in Africa… That’s a pretty compelling argument.

  2. Agreed SeaKat. But Pepe and Matilda? I want to write a children’s book about them.

    Oh, and on a related note that I had a dream about last night– Do you think I’d be sued for copyright infringement if I wrote a children’s book about a magician named The Great Poupon?

  3. SeaKat: Yeah, and they belonged to a drug lord. Maybe they were hit-pos.

  5. HAhahaha, voices!

    Chelsea — hmmm. Bet STM could answer that. How about the Great Poop-On? It could join the great canon of scatalogical children’s books such as “Everyone Poops”, “Captain Underpants” and “Walter the Farting Dog.”

  6. Ha! Excellent genre to be in SeaKat! But in my dream he lost his job as a magician and then started a magic school. I think it’s a tale for the ages

  9. That’s what I’m wondering…

  10. Poupon is, at best, trademarked – not copyrighted. So it depends on the use, likelihood of confusion, etc. etc.
