The younger Free-Ride offspring offers this drawing of a hippo exhorting you to remember Thanksgiving.
Judging by the plate in the lower right hand corner of the picture, the hippo is pretty good with portion control. Possibly, though, after cleaning its plate the hippo will eat the cornucopia in the upper left hand corner. You never can tell with hippos.
Still, this hippo seems to have impeccable manners.
A question to ponder while digesting your meal: Why does the Russian language have two words for hippopotamus? Are (or were) there so many hippos roaming the steppes that you’d need an extensive hippo vocabulary to describe them?
