"I'm gonna take charge of the hippos humming choir. They need more harmony. And definitely more bass."

 or click here
__________

Karen's notes: This one's easy. We watched a nature program on Saturday about hippos. Along with learning how it is possible for them to fit the entire top half of a man in their mouths, we also learned all about how they communicate by humming and grunting through their nostrils. Thanks, Discovery channel!

Merch update: New t-shirts and mugs! You'll find "fashion assassins", "tap dancing hamsters", "crosshairs of my love" and "arseholes unite" along with all the classics.

Also, buy 4 shirts, get the 5th free! The US shop is doing a special right now, so find four friends or colleagues who want shirts and keep the free one for yourself! (yes, of course I'm joking, you moral people). US $ customers, use code MAYSHIRTS, Canadian $ customers use CADMAYSHIRTS.

ps- for those UK customers who feel shafted, we're really sorry, these specials are all done by Spreadshirt, not us. Write and tell them how you feel!

    My Dad's in 2 choirs. He's not so bass as some guys get, but he's in the bass section of one of those. I wonder if he'd agree to be in the hippo choir. I also wonder how many soprano hippos he sings with. :O

    Merchandise: Do you think if we start bugging them, they'd get some bigger sizes :-D ?

    Good Night (morning) from Canada :-)

    possibly a hip-hummin' display for musical notes to piglatin about...becoming
    the anchoring framework to laying down that beat, bass-icly...

    we discover that these fellas are channelling vocal notes along with the female soprano hyenas and rhinos at bass, the kids in treuble, and all a bit pitchy at times...according to Randy Jackson, knot-strol! sez El-DeGen at the worlds trusted Basspro sport-goodstore "jammin' tyme"..., blood,sweat and tears, and poolsidein' about in a round-about-red at the excitment stage; it's all in the hunt and fishin' for that grunt-to-work-it-out in a song.stressed to perfection, to communicate out a tune along the Adam wavelength - - -

  13. would it be possible to add a check box next to each utterance for people to sort of vote for a t-shirt? many people checking the box would indicate a "winner" for a t-shirt.

  14. @T: If you think it's the *humming* that makes the water bubbly, well...... 7x=Q

  15. I was at the zoo when this posted this morning. They didn't have hippos but I directed a rhino choir and took pictures.

  16. I wonder about a hippo choir. I wonder if they'd wear robes. I wonder if they'd stand on 2 feet to sing. I wonder if they'd inhale the top half of the conductor into their mouth. I wonder why Jarl's girlfriend goes for the top half and not the bottom. I wonder if I can...

  17. I wonder of that was inappropriate?

  20. I can't help but think of my daughter's favorite you tube video. It's Pat (a hippo) singing Lion Sleeps Tonight while Stan (a dog) dances.

  22. Keep trying to use the coupon for the t-shirts and getting an error message that says I don't have enough items to use the coupon. Are tank-tops not included in the offer? I tried to find a way to contact the company directly but got caught in a roundrobin of FAQs that didn't answer my question.
