Friday Night Flicks: The House Hippo and The Bin Chicken

A number of years ago the Concerned Children’s Advertisers produced a public service announcement warning of the dangers of believing everything you see on TV. It was a brilliant parody of the Hinterland Who’s Who series on Canadian wildlife.



I was reminded of it when I found this excellent parody of the Planet Earth programs. The narrator does a great imitation of David Attenborough.



Perhaps you will discover some unusual wildlife this weekend.

    LOL. Oh, dear, I’m afraid David Attenborough deserves that. I say that even though I do love his work.

    …and I really want to believe in house hippos.

    Not sure about house hippo, but I can attest to the reality of Bin Chickens. It is now believed to have over-run the Feathered Rat (pigeon) and inter-breeding has been reported in some broadsheets.However, that is, of course, completely impossible.

      OMG, Bin Chickens are horrible. Any hope that they may be displacing genuine rats? (They seem less likely to move into houses and bite babies, and are therefor slightly less horrible than rattus norvegicus.) House hippos on the other hand are desirable: they are cute, sleep 16 hours a day, and are completely imaginary.

        En masse, ibis are a bit of a smelly pest.But they are great at aerating lawns! Problem is, people started feeding them chips and bits of sandwich and now, like gulls, they expect it!
