One Reply to “Really Bad Day at Work”

  1. Just in case you thought this was a fluke. It’s happened before. Hilda ate a dwarf named Franz in Austria in 1994 (I’m not sure how Hilda got from Austria to Thailand though). 😉

    “An Austrian circus dwarf died recently when he bounced sideways from a trampoline and was swallowed by a hippopotamus. Seven thousand people watched as little Franz Dasch popped into the mouth of Hilda the Hippo and the animal’s gag reflex forced it to swallow. The crowd applauded wildly before other circus people realized what has happened.”

    BTW – it’s also the title of a book.
