OFFICIAL Hungry Hungry Hippos BattleThread!


#1

As requested by @Epimer in today’s Daily thread.

He has made the tactical error of mashing his hippo before any of the balls have been released.

How do YOU respond?


#2

I was checking the mechanism worked before the stakes get high, obviously.


#3

I choose the purple hippo, Henrietta.


#4

i think i’ll prob start mashing my hippo now thanks colin


#5

looks on in disgust


#6

Just gonna mash the hippo and let the fates decide


#7

how long do you reckon itll be before that post is in the out of context thread?


#8

I’m surprised it’s not already there.


#9

sighs and mashes Henrietta


#10

I am very, very, very subtly tilting the playing arena towards me


#11

NOW MASHING FOR MY LIFE


#12

I’m gonna try and psych everyone out by demanding a reading of the rules before the balls are released.


#13

WHATS THAT HORSE? I CANT HEAR YOU OVER ALL THE MASHING!


#14

fuck! Hippo jam! Hippo jam! Dislocated jaw!!! PAUSE EVERYONE


#15

I DEMAND TO KNOW WHETHER THIS PRE-GAME MASHING IS LEGAL OR NOT


#16

points at the hippos, points at ear, shakes head mouthing “I can’t hear” in an exaggerated way


#17

Guys, can you keep it down, I’m trying to read


#18

FINE! LET IT BE KNOWN THAT I REFUSE TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS FARCE. THIS IS A DARK, DARK DAY IN THE LONG AND STORIED HISTORY OF HUNGRY, HUNGRY HIPPOS.


#19

Have I won yet?


#20

Hmmm maybe this wasn’t the best choice for the Quiet Coach in retrospect. Can’t stop now though.
