Hippo Eats Dwarf


I have gotten a great deal of Snopes-worthy items in my inbox as of late. I had to report on this one!!! Besides being funny as all get out (just let your mind imagine it!), it apparently has been circulating around for several years, and the dwarf has changed nationalities a few times. The hippo, surprisingly enough, has retained the name Hilda. I guess that's a good hippo name. Check out the Snopes article here:

What I really love about it is the fact that there is a band NAMED after this story. See them here:

I didn't believe this when I sent it because all those little newspaper articles are like that...........totally not true, but this one was so funny I had to send.

I can just picture that in my mind and I about fell out of my chair! That is priceless!

Not that I have anything against dwarfs, mind you....
