Wow, the clipping scan adds so much to this. I want video
Every single detail of this short story is note perfect, and adds up to one of the craziest things I've ever read in my life. The dwarf is named Od. The hippo is yawning. The hippo is named Hilda. The trampoline. The applauding crowd. The use of the phrase "freak accident" in reference to a swallowed circus dwarf. The mind boggles.
OMG, this is a Lewis Black joke. It's from his album "Anticipation." He's talking about funny headlines and he says, "You know what a funny headline would be? 'Hippo eats dwarf.'"
As much as I hate to burst the giggle bubble over this story, it is one of the oldest 'print' urban legends out there. It's hilarious to think about, and I am sure someone is going to put it in a movie someday, but it is sadly, not true. damn those folks at Snopes!
Sorry boys ... it's a hoax ...http://www.snopes.com/horrors/freakish/hippoeatsdwarf.asp

"I now forgive Calvin Klein for previously hiring Justin Bieber as a model. I literally stopped buying the brand at that. I will reconsider now."
