  1. I want a tiny hippopotamus for Christmas
    Only a tiny hippopotamus will do
    No crocodiles, no rhinoceroses
    I only like tiny hippopotamuses
    And tiny hippopotamuses like me too

  2. Tiny Hippo hopes to one day grow big and snack on the feet of people while keeping their toes warm. Sound familiar?

  3. Tiny Hippo hears the other hippos whispering when she trundles by–but she’s just undertall, not overweight! The hippo-crites!

  4. People are always saying how she’s such a bully. So what if hippos kill more people each year then any other animal? She’s the size of a peanut for pete’s sake!

  5. There was a tiny hippo
    She danced around her room
    One day she danced and danced and danced
    Till she fell down and went boom!

  7. I might look heavy, but I’m light on my feet! I can float like a butterfly in a breeze. ” Now, where did I leave my wings?!”

  8. always sensitive about her weight,after years of fad diets ‘jumbo’ hippo found one that works. the only thing is , I think the ‘anti marble’ diet worked…a little ‘too’ well?

  9. They call me mellow yellow… that’s right slick!

    I had a yellow hippo bank as a kid. Unfortunately it was destroyed when someone broke into the house. I have always search for a fun replacement. I think maybe I will have to knit one as a cozy over a pig one. I love it…
