A funny from one of my funnies

We were in the middle of a speech session.
We were writing sentences using adjectives.

Then my kiddo (fourteen year old with Autism and a major lisp) turns to me, puts a comforting hand on my shoulder, and says:
between you and me, don't go to Africa.
me: okay?
kiddo:it's because of the hippos (with the I-feel-sorry-that-you-don't-already-know-this look on his face)
me: the hippos?
kiddo: hippos eat people. and hippos run 30 miles per hour!


and then we went back to writing sentences.
so, take our advice.
never go to Africa.

Advice taken. I wouldn't want to be face to face with a man-eatting hippo.

I heard a hippo growl on Saturday. It was intense. I've heard that hippos kill more africans than any other animal.

I just learned recently that Hippos can run fast. Who would have thought? Yes, I am not planning to go to Africa any time soon.
Thanks for sharing.
