Hilda the hippopotamus fell in love with Geronimo. But there was a problem: Geronimo was a giraffe.
What’s wrong with that? you might well ask. The difficulty was that they were into their third date and busy necking in the back seat of their Volkswagen, and there simply wasn’t enough room.
“There’s only one thing for it,” said Geronimo. “We need a sports car with a roll-back hood thingy.”
So that’s what they got and it solved lots of problems. Pretty soon, Hilda and Geronimo were married. They had six kids, three hipporaffes and three gipotamuses. They lived happily ever after, and actually, if you must know, some of their kids became quite famous.
