MAY 5, mammalian wildlife: hippos (-otamuses vs -otami)

 The above is iambic verse; therefore it scans: 
'MOST of US to QUELL the FUSSes
PreSUME we're HIPpoPOtaMUSes'

HERE is a nonsense posting from last November that also features hippopotamuses; it has been written in more familiar anapestic (limerrhoidal) meter.
