Haha, no, didn't but it sounds very fitting! Hippos are very imposing animals...
It's fairly easy to construct extremely long words in Swedish, by the way, e.g. konjunkturutvecklingsprognos
(prediction of a market/GDP development cycle) or riskkapitalbolagsdirektionshögkvarter
(headquarters of the directorate of a risk investment company)... Words getting joined onto each other for a multi-compound instead of putting breaks between the individual words in there.
Did you know that George Harrison got the gig of playing lead guitar in the Beatles by showing that he could play Raunchy
? Funny thing is, it doesn't sound like that hard a tune...
(We had that EP at home when I grew up and the straightforward, repetitive but stingy tune became a bit of a joke between my brother and myself)
