Just like the hippopotamus Christmas song….
I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
Only a hippopotamus will do
Don’t want a doll, no dinky Tinker Toy
I want a hippopotamus to play with and enjoy!
Since Santa didn’t deliver the truffle pig I asked for last year…. I am assuming he is not going to send me a hippo either. (Really,
Santa? I don’t think I’m asking for too much!)
So, I decided to take matters into my own hands, and buy myself a hippo. Sadly, Canadian customs dropped the bomb on me that this is illegal. As a last resort, I’ve decided to make my own cuddly imitation hippo!
