Why, yes. Yes, someone said Hiphopopotamus. We did, in fact. And immediately afterwards, this silly Flight of the Conchords song crawled in our heads like a good little earworm. Okay, fine, most FotC songs are silly. This one is both especially silly and especially good. So here's to the newest lil' hippo to slip into the world at the San Diego Zoo. Hey, Zoo folks, may we suggest naming the wee (for now) one Bret or Jemaine?
