"Hateful to me as the gates of Hades
is that the man who hides one
Thing in his heart and speaks another".
In several of the 'classics'
'HADES' is often referred to as The Gates of Hell.
by Ogden Nash.
Behold The Hippopotamus!
We laugh at how he looks at us,
And yet in moments dark and grim,
I wonder how we look too him.
Peace, thou hippopotamus, !
We really look alright to us, As you no doubt delight the eye
Of the other hippopotami.
by Jack Prelusky.
The huge Hippopotamus hasn't a hair
on the back of his wrinkly hide;
he carries the bulk of his prominent hulk
assembled loosely inside.
The huge Hippopotamus lives without a care
at a slow philosophical pace,
as he wades in the mud with a thump and a thud
and a permanent grin on his face.
A smiling hippopotamus.
In my imagination these Happy Hippos are dancing 'The Bump', when in reality they are part of the troop of Hippos dancing to the 'Dance of the Hours' by Toscanini in Disney's Fantasia !
HAPPY HIPPOS' HAVING an HILLARIOUS time....
Dancing 'The Bump'
A HEART warming moment as a very
HAPPY little girl with her HANDSOME friend.....
HUMPHREY the Camel....as they share an HILLARIOUS moment....
I wonder what caused this HAPPY moment?
<HAPPY> < HAPPY> <HAPPY>
