Genetic engineering had certainly come a long way when Rick Bergeron Ph.D. decided to cross a hippopotamus with a whale. Apparently they are fairly close genetic relations. They were not to be crossed exactly the way a horse and a donkey can be. Doctor Rick was to share genetic material and implant it in a female whale to see what would happen.
He was renowned for his skill. He was the one who had taken DNA from a guanlong remnant and brought them back into existence after millions of years. He was able to show that the crest at the top of its head wasn’t simply for sex appeal but served other purposes as well. And they had feathers! The guanlong bred like flies and eventually had to be exterminated because of the earth’s inability to feed them adequately. Whole flocks of sheep would disappear overnight.
The time drew nigh for the birth of the world’s first whalewhotamus. Planet Earth was hushed!
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.
