Posted:I was looking on eBay the other day for a nice hippo to go with my fire poi but couldn't find any "poi" related hippos (not that I held out much faith) which got me thinking- why doesn't the ZOP shop sell "poi hippos"? (just a thought confused )

Posted:Would love a new one, but I guess if a used one's all you can find, it's better than not having one at all. The worst part is having to untrain and retrain them. I had a friend who bought one off this guy, and it turned out to have a bit of a foul vocabulary. It taught this guy's 3 other poi hippos to be the same, and the next thing you know, they were waking him up in the middle of the night to a barrage of verbal obscenities- on a nightly basis. You might have heard people talking about them.. the Foulmouth 4. ubbrollsmile

You know. Hippos. They run around at a speed of about 45km/h on land.. Hippos.

I was wondering how come the ZOP shop doesn't sell 'poi hippos'. confused
