    BANGKOK, Thailand - A hippopotamus swallowed a circus dwarf in a "freak accident" in northern Thailand, according to a columnist in the Pattya Mail.

    The Grapevine column reported: "A circus dwarf, nickname Od, died recently when he bounced sideways from a trampoline and was swallowed by a yawning hippopotamus waiting to appear in the next act."

    That's odd, I would think that anyone whose worth their weight in circus dwarf management is well aware of how often dwarfs typically bounce sideways towards awaiting animals.

    "Vets said Hilda the Hippo had a gag reflex which caused her to swallow. More than 1000 spectators continued to applaud wildly until they realized there had been a tragic mistake."

    I didn't know there was a dwarf named "Od'! Well, we know he couldn't have been "Happy"!

    i gotta tell you. You ever been stretched out drunk at the camp looking at the stars and wondering how you might die? I don't think this would have ever gone past my mind. Poor dude.

    That must have been a terrible phone call to the family.

    This has been one heck of a week. Ed Mcman, Farah Faucett and now this.

    Circus Dwarf Management? Wow, that sounds like a major in ‘short’ supply.

    I once asked a friend what would be the worst way to die. "Drowning in marinated vegetables", he replied.

    I suppose being consumed by a hippo would be right up there too.
