Grapes with the Apes

Spring is a good time to be a hippo in the city – there's always something fun to do. Recently, I went to a big wine tasting party with my friends at the zoo. The bouncer didn't even check my I.D. because I am, of course, a V.I.P. (Very Important 'Po).

Most of the people were sticking their noses in their glasses, taking a sip, and then scribbling things on paper. My nose wouldn't quite fit, so I just admired the color and doodled monkeys on my menu.

Did you notice that the ape design on your wine glass ACTUALLY looks mighty much like a HIPPO!!! Silly artists. I think they had you in mind and still had to just call it an ape. Besides, why apes/grapes? Just because it rhymes? Gosh, I think a hippo could accurately squash more grapes with those wonderful feet! :)

Loukoumades! Greek Doughnuts! Hippo must like a lot of grease with his sugar ... or a lot of sugar with his grease!

We hippos DO have to maintain our shapely round physiques somehow! What better way than round food?!?! I only get to eat them twice a year, though-during the Greek festivals in the spring and fall.
