A Hippopotamus Isn't the Most Practical Family Pet I've Seen

Illustration for article titled A Hippopotamus Isnt the Most Practical Family Pet Ive Seen

This is Jessica, a hippo that was found abandoned as a baby but is now the pet of the Joubert family in South Africa. It thinks it's people! There's no gadget connection here, but when Blam says it's animal day, who am I to argue? [Actually, I said gadget related animal posts. Hippos are gadgets, though. —B.L.] Hit the jump for another picture of a hippo in someone's living room. What a world, am I right guys?!?

@Damage: Hippos account for the majority of fatalities there, above crocs, angry African elephants and lions.

Here's a plan. Feed the hippo some ecstasy, put a pink tutu on it, and reenact a scene from Fantasia.
