Feed the Hippo... please : )

Lauren Nuñez and the crew at the NeoTangoZone Milonga in Northampton, Massachusetts suggested that I make a sign saying "Feed the Hippo."  At the end of the evening, as I put the remaining books in my bag, I noticed a small collection of candy - chocolate kisses and mints kindly set aside for The Yellow Hippopotamus.  Ask and you shall receive.
