Short for "hippopotamus" (Hippopotamus amphibius) and one of only two extant species in the family Hippopotamidae. A large, funny-looking, semi-aquatic, mostly plant-eating African mammal resambling a fat horse-pig hybrid whose pissed off at life and spends most of its time slacking around and jerking off in ponds and rivers. Despite their stocky shape and short legs, hippos can easily outrun a human (some have been clocked at 30 mph (48 km/h), faster than an Olympic sprinter). They have a taste human babies, catholic priests, and crocodiles and are thought to be Africa's most dangerous animal. They are totally awesome and on the very top of the food chain, so they can eat whatever they want WHENEVER they want. People in Africa have learned to fear and respect hippos because of their fierce character and complete randomness, ironically, the same things that makes them so cool and awesome.
Kid 1: Who would win in a fight between a ninja and a hippo?!
Kid 2: Well, the ninja of course!
Kid 1: WRONG!! Ninjas and hippos balance each other on awesomeness and sweetness, so the battle would rage on forever!
*A ninja chops Kid 1's head while a hippo eats Kid 2's head , then they high-five and walk toward the sunset holding hands...*

An overweight hippy.
No way I'm taking home that hippo. She reeks of patchouli and probably hasn't shaved her bush since the 90s.

A big mouth hippo is a person who says something is wrong one day but then goes and does that exact same thing or has already done it in the past. Calling someone a hippo is like saying look who's talking. Comes from the word hypocrite, but might also be a reference to the really big mouth of a hippo when it opens wide.

Highest Paid Persons Opinion. Usually the person at the head of the corporate ladder whose opinion finally matters.

Well, as usual HiPPo wins!

That’s because the HiPPO at the table has her/his own priorities and experiences and context and opinions.
