Meimi Hartman—you are a genius.

Meimi, if you are not already a profesh photographer, you better get on it. Look at this shot, for crying out loud. A SMILING HIPPO!? For God's sake, get thee to National Geographic.


Hippos might win the ULTIMATE ear-to-head ratio, BTW.

Hippo stubble!!

 |  Jun 28, 2006 at 01:27 PM

That is NOT a muzzlepuff.

 |  Jun 28, 2006 at 01:28 PM

It could be gas.

That is TEWTELLY a muzzlepuff. The definition is a floofy jowl. I believe there is definite floof...prickley but a floof nonetheless.

 |  Jun 28, 2006 at 01:33 PM

I love it! Even with the chompy factor, LOVE IT!!!

 |  Jun 28, 2006 at 01:33 PM

smiling hippo is cute but he needs a shave. i thought i was looking at an aquatic cactus!

 |  Jun 28, 2006 at 01:35 PM

Awww, he looks so happy and content. KISSES!!
*smooch smooch!

 |  Jun 28, 2006 at 01:36 PM

Thats what I was thinking...hippo needs a shave. Cute though. :D

 |  Jun 28, 2006 at 01:37 PM

He looks like a sunbather getting out after a week of rain.

Not a muzzlepuff, a scrufflepuff!

 |  Jun 28, 2006 at 01:37 PM

What a beautiful hippo!! I love the nose

 |  Jun 28, 2006 at 01:38 PM

cute. cute. cute.

 |  Jun 28, 2006 at 01:39 PM

GAH!!! Smiley hippo made my day!

 |  Jun 28, 2006 at 01:40 PM

dang. and i thought shaving my legs was a nuissance. imagine waking up to that scruff!

 |  Jun 28, 2006 at 01:40 PM


 |  Jun 28, 2006 at 01:40 PM

...And that is SO teh ultimate muzzlepuff!!!

 |  Jun 28, 2006 at 01:41 PM

 |  Jun 28, 2006 at 01:43 PM

It's muzzlestickles!

A thinker
 |  Jun 28, 2006 at 01:43 PM

I love it!

 |  Jun 28, 2006 at 01:47 PM

It's the squint that really makes the smile.

At first I thought it was some whacking, ugly fish and I was so relieved to discover that it was actually a hippo.

*doesn't like fish...*

 |  Jun 28, 2006 at 01:48 PM

'cha! Smiling hippo! If you haven't been by BBC today, gotta go and check out the grinning baby zebra. You can practically hear him snickering at you.

 |  Jun 28, 2006 at 01:51 PM

Holy Orthodontics, Redzilla! That is one hilarious zeber!!!

 |  Jun 28, 2006 at 01:58 PM

Moist spinicles!

 |  Jun 28, 2006 at 01:59 PM

That smile is because it knows it's one of the most dangerous animals in the world.

 |  Jun 28, 2006 at 02:09 PM

That is awesome!!!

 |  Jun 28, 2006 at 02:11 PM

MEG! You should make this a greeting card. I've forwarded it to at least 8 people already.

 |  Jun 28, 2006 at 02:13 PM

There's kind of eye-capsule action there too....

 |  Jun 28, 2006 at 02:17 PM

He's also smiling because he knows he's one hippo-notic example of style and good looks. He doesn't stop talking about himself! That hippodroned on and on!

 |  Jun 28, 2006 at 02:21 PM

Egad! Those whiskers on the muzzlepuffs look like the ones on a co-worker's chin. How disturbing is THAT!

 |  Jun 28, 2006 at 02:22 PM

I'm sorry but the words used here just crack me up (YEEP?)... LOL'ing at work... bad me.

Pretty sure a hippo smooch would be rather pokey/spiney :(

 |  Jun 28, 2006 at 02:29 PM

OMG that is ugly and so cute at the same time!!

He's so funny looking, but that big grin is so hilarious!

Broody herr! As the pik was loading I thought Meg had found an albino strawberry somewhere (look, it's been a long day, ok? :p) and had gone completely off the rails.

OMG! So cute! But when it was first downloading, I thought it was a porcupine or something like that because I couldn't see the bottom half...

 |  Jun 28, 2006 at 02:47 PM

mmmmmmmmmm albino straaaaaaawberries.....

 |  Jun 28, 2006 at 02:51 PM

Meanwhile, in the world of things that should be cute but aren't...
Came across an Indian thing called a kitty party. My eyes lit up, as you can imagine - a room full of floofed and skwee'ed kitties, partying and snorgling - what's not to like!? Alas, 'twas not to be...even the headline is misleading!! :(

He's puckering up to kiss the glass and give it a case of whisker rash. ;)

 |  Jun 28, 2006 at 03:02 PM

Too CUTE, at first I thought it was a Walrus...A HIPPO, HOORAY!!

 |  Jun 28, 2006 at 03:06 PM

No, Angela, as I recall, someone else was the Walrus.

Goo Goo G'Joob...

 |  Jun 28, 2006 at 03:26 PM

I think a kitty party is what my dad would call a hen party.

Only if you want to peck and choose...

 |  Jun 28, 2006 at 03:37 PM

Does anyone else remember a song about hippos called "Mud"? (Not that there's any mud here. This is one clean hippo.)

Mud, mud, glorious mud,
Nothing quite like it for cooling the blood,
so follow me, follow,
down to the hollow,
and there we shall wallow
in glorious mud!

 |  Jun 28, 2006 at 03:39 PM

does anyone know if the "hippo stubble" has a purpose?

 |  Jun 28, 2006 at 04:05 PM

Can't tell you - looks like you've come across a real stubbling block.

 |  Jun 28, 2006 at 04:18 PM

verrry cute :)
I don't know about the millions of hair hole things on its face though... really bugs me :(

 |  Jun 28, 2006 at 04:42 PM

"does anyone know if the "hippo stubble" has a purpose?"

Makes hippo teens look older so they can date the hot college hotties.

 |  Jun 28, 2006 at 04:42 PM

this is the only time i have ever thought to kiss a hippo!

 |  Jun 28, 2006 at 05:13 PM

So cute that I just made it the background on my desktop!

 |  Jun 28, 2006 at 05:20 PM

Pricklepuff galore.

 |  Jun 28, 2006 at 05:46 PM

you all need to get a life

The Hippopotamus
Ogden Nash
Behold the hippopotamus!
We laugh at how he looks to us,
And yet in moments dank and grim,
I wonder how we look to him.
Peace, peace, thou hippopotamus!
We really look all right to us,
As you no doubt delight the eye
Of other hippopotami.
