    I would like to take a luxury hippo to work! Will it make a stop at Starbucks?

      Fageddabotit! Don’t they have café on board?

        No but I think there is a bar, of course, with Isaac your bartender.

          That’s Friday’s happy hour hippopotamus, known as the the love boat, right?

    Basking in the sun together. Turtle foots back massage for lucky hippo. Ooo yeah right there. Oh ya, that’s the spot.

    Are those turtles playing the age-old game of Flip The Hippo? If they all crowd to the left, whoops there she goes.

      …as long as they’re not playing “Hungry Hungry Hippos”!

      This is so cute – hippo is in some sort of Zen state.

    Forget mass transport, the way to travel now is massive transport!

    A very green way to commute!

    AJ the sender inner here. OMG Mike, love the story you crafted to go along with the pic I found! I bow before the master.

    There’s something ridiculously funny to me imagining the interaction between turtle and hippo when arranging this kind of ride. I just don’t imagine these guys hanging out and chatting it up during their days of being wild. But I’m wrong!

      Those turtles better move to the front!!
      Hippo: jets engaged.

        Cannot be unseen. Or unheard!! 😳

            They say a smell can evoke a suppressed memory. Gee like anyone could forget THAT!!
