Hippo! - Photo TR-Ish

Postby Canobie Fan » Mon Feb 19, 2007 2:02 pm

So yeah... Some of you may have seen TPR updates where a photo of a Hippo had the text along the lines of "Hi James" (Like in the Disney Hong Kong update) Or things like Hippo vs. Penguin (and later on Yetiball)

Well there is a reason for all this...
Its because Robb and Elissa just can't admit that Hippo is the greatest... ::P Well uh.. I guess you need the back story.

So I worked at a summer camp back in 2000ish where a kid gave me this Hippo beanbag/water toy and as a joke we just took it around with us everywhere we went (Canobie Lake, Water Country, White Water Rafting... and more) well the Hippo thing kinda stuck with me.. So I just kept bringing him along with me places I went.

In 2003 I made a website for my Hippo that 'predated' the "Hippo Photo" thing. The site is long gone now.. But may come back some day. It was "www.WhereIsHippo.com" and it was just kinda a blog about the places hippo had been.

In 2005 I went out to Niagara Falls (for MFI and SFDL) and I took a photo of Hippo at the falls.. And that started the 'hippo photo' So from that point on I have gone around taking photos at different places with my hippo...

Hippo has been to every Country I have been to... And every state I have been in but West VA... Here are Hippos maps ::)

Hippo > Penguin

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

First off - The Cyclone at the (now) torn down Southport park? That the pic of...?

On second glance...naw - the lift hill's too (ahem) straight here, right? :wink:

Then there's the WTF photo here - the 'caveman' on the scooter there...
(can't repost pic here for some reason...)

Man, I thought my beard was pretty thick on the UK Tour.

Apparently not so, hmm? Heh heh heh. What IS that photo all about, anyway?

Hey Hippo! You should be racking up some good mileage points for future credit whoring huh? GO HIP GO!
