Very nonsense


The latest in wireless gaming

They still sell this, the most nonsensical game in the universe: Hungry Hungry Hippos! Four plastic hippos eating marbles.

the classic marble munching game, is viewed by many so-called experts as ‘a board game for young children.’ We beg to differ, as those stuffy old encyclopedia writers obviously haven’t played this fast and furious game after a few jars down the local. If they had, they’d know that despite its obvious appeal to kiddies, Hungry Hippos is even more entertaining if you’re an overly refreshed adult. After all, how often do you get to hammer a hippo in order to make it munch as many marbles as possible? Exactly.

I was only 4 when it happened. This is a TRUE STORY. This really happened. My older cousin Kiana, was playing “Hugry, Hungry Hippos.” The game would not work and it fell apart. She was 6. Her and her friend Darlene decided it would be a good idea to suck on some of the marbles. Kiana fell down and swallowed 4 marbles and was sent to the emergency room. Luckily, she survived, with a surgery resulting in huge medical bills. Kiana almost died from this, she was 6. Hungry Hippos teaches NOTHING except for bad idea and horrible accidents. Please do NOT, NOT, NOT buy this for children under 7. Infact, don’t buy it at all. I doesn’t work, and if it was 1 penny more cheap, it would be made of cardboard

If it means really living on the edge like that, I think I might go and get a set for Christmas.

iTunes is playing an illegal copy of Last Christmas by Wham of which I have the original CD.

  3. I remember that.. Looking at it now, I have to agree, it’s not the best thing for kids while they’re at the age where they’ll eat dirt if they can grab it. We somehow managed to avoid any major accidents. After a point though, we lost all our marbles. I wonder if they sold refills, or tried to fleece parents by making them buy entirely new sets, or just expected us to replace them with peas..

  5. The box design has changed.

    I think it might still be lying about somewhere at home in one of those forsaken cupboards. One of the hippos started getting retarded cause the spring mechanism was faulty. Made hell lot of noise, not cause the toy was noisy, but cause while playing my family was screaming non stop.
