  1. “Seen it. Covered it. With Farmers XL Pet Insurance, you don’t have to worry about your finances taking a cut like your hippo’s balls! Farmers Insurance. We know a thing or two because we’ve seen a thing or two.”

  2. Why not hit them with a few tranquilizing darts to knock them out, then tow them to shore with a rope and some pulleys?

    Honestly this seems like a $1,000 job if you hire the right people for the area.

    $50k would be too high even in the U.S.

  3. Would you need to use a tranq gun or just throw one of them brown packages over the fence?

    As long as you survive the first 5mins of it, he should be out pretty quickly.

  4. Weirdest shit I’ve heard in a long time that just kinda sounds right. I guess I understand the cross but how we figured out we needed a crane and not just tranquilizers a some kind of knife and stitches is insane
