Because it’s Friday, and you needed a hippo puppet

Chico the pygmy hippo was refusing to eat. Then a zookeeper at the Heythrop Zoological Gardens in northern England started feeding him while wearing a hand puppet of Gloria, the hippo from the movie Madagascar. Now he’s eating. Read on, if you like, but mostly I just felt more people should see this picture.

[Thanks Greg. Also for the turbaconducken. Yikes.]

    This is the first time in my life I have ever been disappointed by bacon. “Why???” you cry. It is because I parsed “turbaconducken” as “turb-ACOND-ucken” and hoped I would see a turducken that had been eaten by an anaconda.

    Next year this thing Chico is going for his driving licence?
    Do we have a source confirming all this with the stuffed form thing is true, might it be possible the owner wanting to boost the visitors figures.
    Even a few drops of the right lure on the head of a boaconstructor will attract Chico.

  4. That is a great tip especially to those fresh to the blogosphere.
    Short but very accurate information… Thank you for sharing this one.
    A must read article!

  5. Excellent way of explaining, and good piece of writing to get data concerning my presentation subject matter,
