Diplomatic Hippopatomii

It's funny.  Laugh. 0

The origin of the hippopotamus' name is greek; loosely translating to river horse or water horse. The animals natural habitat is land and water... it's amphibious! Its sexual preference is heterosexual and often hordes females in a harem-like group and fends off approaching males which may threaten the hippo's relationship with the females. Although its wild-life behavior seems similar a Sultan or a rapper the hippo's public service efforts are quite diplomatic.

For example, the most interesting fact about hippopotamii is that they often develop diplomacy between unfriendly countries and even go so far as to offer solutions to foreign policy which may not have surfaced without their support as in recent developments between Germany and Thailand.
