I have this song on CD, Dr. Demento presents The Greatest Christmas Novelty CD of All Time :D

I was hoping someone would recognize the tune, it seemed like a real song to me, but I wasn't sure...

And considering who Castela's various adoptive relatives are... it's entirely possible that she might get her wish! Although I suppose that might be a bit much even for Mama Bear Katherine to handle on short notice.

I am SO glad the grands don't know this song.

And Nobody better even THINK of ever teaching it to 'em.

I have Spike Jones' "All I Want for Christmas (is my Two Front Teeth)". I have Metropolitan Melinda's "Politically Correct Christmas". I( have The Roches' a capella "Hallelujah Chorus".

I'm pretty sure i have other Christmas horrors in reserve.

But why a hippopotamus? A mule for Yule would be a much more practical holiday animal.

I Loves it!
My daughters (16 and 19) sing it randomly around Christmas.
Often at loud screechy levels.

Now you've done it, FF! You'll have to be Good, or one of us might be Naughty! We don't even have to have a Jaguar Girl handy, to make you face a terrible fear! :twisted: :P

I guess technically the song qualifies as hipp-op.

Merry Christmas to all! (And Pablo leaves us with a cliffhanger until Friday!)

She pronounced Hippopotamus right the first time, so "pots-a-mess" kinda has to be on purpose :lol:

Wonder how long she can string out "I only like Hippopotamuseseseseseses" (Gosh, spell check doesn't like that one! :P )

And as long as we're sharing wacky Christmas songs, I'll just leave this over here...aaand that over there.
