Cleveland Cavaliers' human hungry hippos half-time show is a blot on the copybook of humanity

Hello everyone. Welcome to 2016, where Britain has left the European Union, Donald Trump is president-elect of the United States of America, and hungry hungry hippos are in fact, hungry hungry humans.

At least, that was the case at the Cleveland Cavaliers’ latest game, where the half-time entertainment only confirmed the bizarre state of world affairs.

This doesn’t sit right with us. No sir.

If you can get your head around this abomination, you might have stuck with the video long enough to see that the pink human/hippo was the hungriest, winning a $100 gift card for use at the Cavaliers’ gift shop.

And for the losers? Ignominy… and a free Wine & Gold Nation one-year membership, of course.
