    Want to know something really weird? The exact same thing happened to a circus dwarf named Franz Dasch in Austria.


    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 had happened.

    Funnily enough that hippo was called Hilda too. Oh, perhaps these aren't quite the innocent accidents everyone suspects...

    • This is just beginning to lend creedence to a theory I've heard: that the universe is way simpler than we previously imagined, and we're like cartoons running down a hallway and passing the same door over and over again.

      Someone better contact the Total Hippo Awareness office before this gets out of hand...
