Od Story not an Oggs story – It would seem to be true, but made us laugh so much.
Bangkok. A hippopotamus swallowed a circus dwarf in a ‘freak accident’ in northern Thailand, according to a columnist in the Pattaya Mail.
The Grapevine column reported, “A circus dwarf, nicknamed Od, died recently when he bounced sideways from a trampoline and was swallowed by a yawning hippo waiting to appear in the next act.”
“Vets said Hilda the Hippo had a gag reflex which caused her to swallow. More than 1000 spectators continued to applaud wildly until they realised there had been a tragic mistake.”
