Harry Hippo and the House

After the rioting of the last few days, you’d be forgiven for wondering if your abode was loot-proof. To be honest, it probably isn’t. The looters are so small, they can get into big houses like yours, dear friend, quite easily. What’s more, if you’re not a Sikh you probably haven’t got a sword either. So perhaps you’ll be interested in my riot-proof house?


The picture above brings the idea to life; combining a small but robust house with a large hippo (harry, in this instance) behind it, lurking in the shadows, ready and willing to pounce on any potential looters. The benefit of the small house is obviously to make it difficult for looters to actually get in. The hippo, although giving the appearance of being menacing, is actually quite friendly, but should do the job.


Admittedly, right now it’s just a concept, but it’s probably going to be massive when the meeja get hold of it. Maybe even Inspector Corbett will ask me about it, as she still hasn’t got in touch about breaking my bike lock the other week.
