once upon a time...

...there was a Stripey Hippo that loved to take long baths in the lake and use coconut oil to hydrate his otherwise thick skin. He lived a carefree life, but he had no real friends, as all the other hippos considered him a shallow hipposexual. "Can't a boy take care of his looks also?" he wondered. But he didn't give the others too much attention, as he had too many other things to take care of. Only one day, his luck was about to change, as a Casting Director Birdie came into town, looking for young talents. At the sight of Stripey Hippo, she remained chirpless and immediately booked him for a movie. That way, Stripey made it big and remained a symbol for all the other male hippos that discovered the miraculous effects of coconut oil as well.
